Rittman is a pretty nice small town in Ohio. The neighborhoods are overall very nice, but there are some that could be potentially dangerous. The school buildings are very nice here as well. Rittman also has a very nice recreation center that is always very clean and has very friendly staff. As a small town, the community does a good job of keeping it clean and safe. This town is definitely very family-friendly as there are a lot of families that live here. Rittman is continuing to grow and grow and would be a good place for a family to live.

Awesome public school! The town is known for lots of drug issues, but our experience with the public school has been stellar, fantastic staff! Many improvements in the town
My experience with Rittman, Ohio was bitter-sweet. I grew up in the 90s and the town was wholesome and a small town that you would want to raise a family and grow roots. It was my stomping grounds, my home. As I matured and finding myself out, I started to realize that I was going against my small towns morals and code. I had became an outcast due to my different morals and values. My hometown was a bigoted mass of individuals who would fight against people who challenged their beliefs. With no change, the town started to become diseased with drugs due to the lack of community. The town in which I grew up in, and realized what they stood for was now becoming nothing but a wasteland. I had to extract myself from the depths of its despair to better myself and future. My hometown is nothing more than a blurred memory that I don't rekindle often.
