Its a relatively average town. I wish to see public schools to continue working on their educational growth. In the past few years the public schools have been making changes that are beneficial to the students, and their learning. I wish to see these changes continue as the years go on. With that being said there is little diversity in both the schools and the town.

Rootstown is a small and close-knit area. Full of mostly elderly people and young families. It is technically a college town, home to the Northeast Ohio Medical University. It's elementary, middle, and high school buildings are all right next to each other; this furthermore enforces that close-knit characteristic. However, as it stands right now the schools are declining in enrollment and funding. This is partly because of the burgeoning high school known as Bio-Med, which Rootstown is also home to.
Rootstown is a stereotypical small, rural town. While mostly a farming town, Rootstown is full of generous, down to earth people that would give you the shirt off their back.
