Living in Sheridan for almost 16 years now has definitely been a great time. It's a small town so you really get to know everybody, or at least know of them. The people here a generally really kind and helpful. Since mostly everyone who lives in Sheridan goes to Sheridan School District #2, you get to meet everyone during the back to school events or at the parent teacher conferences. We just recently got a brand new school that is 3rd-8th grade and really added to the whole aesthetic of Sheridan.
We are not a high-end town, but we are slowly modifying everything and looking well put together. Habitat for Humanity is building new condos which means that we will soon have more modern houses and more room to house people.
I love Sheridan because it really feels like I have made a whole new family here. It's a tight nit community and it is very diverse.

Sheridan is a small community. I feel safe living here because everybody knows each other. If you every need assistance from your local police department, they are there in an instant. Flyers and newsletters are placed at your door keeping you informed of local news and school events and progress.
There is no danger for tornadoes, but it does snow often, there have been a few times when school has been cancelled or delayed. It's really cold during the winter, but very hot in the summer, and unless it snows, there is a chance of droughts.
