Osawatomie Reviews

Osawatomie is very average in many ways. There is one nice dollar store to shop at, but if you need anything else you have to go to the next town over. The schools have a handful of great teachers, but the majority are just ok. The schools do care about their student's safety quite a bit. They have increased the security recently. They have been redoing the main road through the town progressively and the part that is finished is really nice.
