Shenandoah has a rich history behind it, and has real potential for growth for individuals willing to invest and work with the community. Housing is affordable for a young family starting out. The school system is very solid with great school spirit. The school system is very accommodating and has a great, student with special needs program. With any town there are opportunities to improve and Shenandoah could use the help. I have previously lived in several metropolitan areas and experienced several communities with both good and bad within it. That being said, Shenandoah is a good place to start.

The borough is poorly managed. We pay some of the highest county taxes, yet roads, schools, codes, etc are not maintained/enforced.
Growing up in Shenandoah was amazing. There was always something to do with friends and family. There were beautiful parks to go to and fun community events. There were always children running around together during the summer nights.
