Raceland is a small community located in Eassten KY. The school system is excellent with great athletics and academics.. class size is small so each child gets lots of one on one attention. It is close to malls, grocery stores, movie theaters located in the heart of two neighboring states, West Virginia and Ohio.

Raceland is a beautiful area with friendly people and a welcoming environment. My family has never had a bad experience
It's a low income area because mining and labor jobs are closing. Government assistance programs are limited because tax coffers are being depleted as people leave/abandon homes and the area in general in search of jobs elsewhere. The cycle is awful and current government is not doing anything to promote replacement jobs or encouraging growth in the area.
