Lisle is a very small town. You get to know all your neighbors. The schools are amazing and close together. Lisle high school is one of the top high schools in America. Once you go to a Lisle school, you always go to a Lisle school. There are many events that happen in Lisle. For example, Lisle Eyes to the Skies Festival, monthly car show, scarecrow scramble, and other events. We have an amazing sports program in the junior high and high school. Currently, in 2018, the Lisle High School Varsity Football team is state playoff bound!!!

I am a current resident of Lisle and believe that the Lisle community is excellent overall. I have an infant son so finding a safe neighborhood was top priority for my husband and I and I have to say it is very safe here. The living expenses are affordable, the commute to major highways are fast, and the pubic schools are very good. I have to say one negative factor is the nightlife is very limited in Lisle. The downtown area is small and not very lively even on the weekends. This has been a disappointment because I am a singer and there are not any open jam nights at nearby restaurants or bars.
Lisle is a very respectable community with excellent schools and resources. The people who work and live in Lisle are very friendly and thoughtful...keep up the good job!
