Sabetha is a small friendly town. Good, decent sized schools. Amazing support throughout the community for school, sports, and fundraisers.
Sabetha is a safe town where no one is a stranger. Kids can feel free to be kids. There are plenty of job opportunities whether industrial or other.
Sabetha is growing and has recently added within the last few years, an aquatic center, upgrades to high school press box for football and track, a splash park, and a new fitness center is currently in the works.
Sabetha has an excellent hospital and doctor's office.

Sabetha could use more local restaurants or eateries. The is also not much to do for nightlife in this small town other than a couple small bars that occasionally have live music.

I don’t Sabetha should change a bit. It’s an industrial small town with loving people and a great sense of community. All of the industries work together, and bring in jobs.
The pros:
It has a newly remodeled community pool

The cons:
1. Terrible food
2. Drunks & drug users galore
3. Slum lords rule the rentals
4. They ask big city prices for their old, out dated houses
5. Cars frequently get broken into or stolen
6. The school district forces everyone to participate in Lent
7. My child was taken on several field trips without my knowledge or consent.
8. It's a very small minded & conservative community
9. People are nosey & gossip endlessly
10. Hispanics and African Americans are not well received here.
