I’ve been raised in the same house, on the same property, in the same small community for seventeen years. I can confidently say that I have been raised where Sunday morning church with family was more important than any occasion or birthday party your friends might have. I have been raised to be modest, honest, and trustworthy. Most importantly, they have taught me that family, friends, neighbors, classmates, and my community is more important than myself. I can certainly say that growing up in the small town of Olpe, Kansas has shaped me to be the way I am. I love my community, and I plan on raising my kids here someday.

Olpe is a small town, where everybody knows everybody. I go to Olpe High School and it is a great school, with a good learning atmosphere. Olpe is a town that loves and greatly supports its high school sports
Olpe is a small town in Kansas where everyone knows each other. It is nice to know you have a whole town and community that knows and cares about you. The down side of living in such a small town is that there are very limited things to do. Everything seems to get repetitive after a wile. Over all I enjoy living in this town.
