Loving Reviews

2 reviews
They have awesome schools, but then again student's parents have little education and most of times they are overhelmed with their children's assignments. For a small rural village, these kids here have lots of brains, good test scores. Most teachers do not live in town, they commute, but most of them are extremely dedicated and take pride on being part of the community. It is very quiet, except for the trucks going thru 285. There is just one Dollar store and a gas station, people drive to Carlsbad or Pecos Texas for the nearest Walmart. You must buy well in advance plenty of groceries. If you want to retire, this is not the place for you. There is a lot of petty theft, burgaries, but most of times you know which family did it, they are the same family bringing shame to the community. Other than that, it is a good family town, most people are poor and hardly can afford drugs.

Loving takes pride in it's students that attend the high school. The town posts pictures of the athletics and cheer on the athletes at their games. The town is very small but it trying its best to expand. we are getting a car wash and just got a Laundromat. The maintenance for loving put in new playgrounds and there are many places to play basketball.
