Even though I did not attend North Olmsted School District growing up, I still love the community. The reason I love the community is because where I live is both close to multiple grocery stores and even a large shopping mall. There are also many restaurants in the area ranging from fast food - sit down restaurants. North Olmsted is also great because it offers amenities for their community. The have a recreation center that has both ice rink and swimming pool, while also offering classes in hockey, lifeguarding, skating and much more.

I have lived in North Olmsted for all of my young life. I am 18 years old and will be graduating from our brand new $90 million combined high school (and middle school) campus this year. I couldn't happier with my experience as a Senior in High School here. I had every opportunity to make great friends, participate in sports and be guided and mentored by coaches and teachers here. School wasn't always fun but I can honestly say I am proud to be a member of the North Olmsted community.
North Olmsted is a safe and quiet city. I'm glad I had the chance to grow up here. There are many places for entertainment and fun. North Olmsted has a rec center with an ice skating rink, swimming pool, skate park, and indoor tennis courts as well as a workout gym. North Olmsted also has many shopping centers including a mall with a movie theater. There is a bowling ally as well as a big park with 4 or 5 baseball fields, a football field, and an outdoor basketball court. There is also many places to eat around here. North Olmsted has most of the fast food chain restaurants and many family owned restaurants and diners. There are also bigger chain grocery stores such as Giant Eagle and Wal-Mart but there is also smaller family owned grocery stores such as Olive Tree and Ya Hala which are both Mediterranean. North Olmsted is in a great location where it is easily accessible to two major highways that both connect to downtown Cleveland.
