I have lived in Shenandoah my whole life and I have had a lot of opportunities both with school and the community. Shenandoah is a relatively safe town and there is hardly any bullying in the schools. One downside of Shenandoah is that there is not much diversity. In this town you can find moat anything you need. You have a supermarket, some gas stations, restaurants, clothing stores, and many other local businesses. The high school is very involved with the community so it would be normal if you drove through downtown and saw teenagers out painting for homecoming or finding sponsors for their extracurriculars.

Shenandoah has become my home for the last ten years. I love that the people here know everyone. This town flourishes in town pride and school pride. The one thing I would like to see change, it using the old-historic buildings that are empty downtown. I think the city should change them into businesses that show off the town of Shenandoah.
I moved here from the big city. It's a nice change of scenery and everyone has proven to be kind and friendly. I would recommend this town for anyone looking for small town living with commodities.
