Ravenna Reviews

2 reviews
I have lived here most of my life. I always seem to come back after moving away. The atmosphere here is great, everyone is very welcoming and caring. Ravenna Public School system is great, they have awesome teachers! The only thing semi-negative that I have to say is that some of the streets here in town are in pretty poor shape. Although, that is slowly getting better, as the city has been working on them. Overall a great town, I wouldn't want to raise a family anywhere else.
