South Beloit Reviews
Rating 3.12 out of 5 17 reviews
South Beloit is not an exceptional town in any aspect. There is about 7,600 people on our streets, lots of which are cracked and worn. My experience with South Beloit's School District is alright: there is not much discrimination or prejudice. All the teachers in the South Beloit High School are great people that you can rely on. Outside of the school I have never experienced much community. We don't have a park. They only adult hangout would be the Mustang Bar. The overall quality of South Beloit is not good, I would recommend moving here for the schools but not much else.
Ever since I've been a little girl I was born and raised in the cute little town of South Beloit. This town is where I have met my life long friends, where I have faced some of life's most challenging experiences, where I have felt loved, and where I have molded into the individual that I am today. To waking up and attending my first day of Kindergarten to Graduating High School and attending the local community college near by, it's time for me to say goodbye for awhile. South Beloit will forever hold a special place in my heart.
South Beloit is a great city to live in! We are in unincorporated South Beloit (a slightly nicer area than the rest of town) and it is silent! The neighborhood is so quiet and friendly and welcoming. The Prairie Hill Schools are probably the best schools in all of Illinois!! Highly Recommend moving to South Beloit!
There isn't much to do here. For the most part it is pretty run down and there isn't much room for opportunities.
I grew up here, it's a really small town so everyone knows everyone. There aren't too many job opportunities since it is so small, but the towns surrounding it always have somewhere hiring. The schools are okay, not the best but not the worst.
Small town, close to shopping. We live outside of the city limits, we are unfamiliar with the South Beloit School district. We do go to the library in town, it's small but able to request books from local libraries.
The parental involvement in education was evident and reassuring. There are many extracurricular activities for students to be involved in, but would like to see more outreach to non-traditional students with non-mainstream ideas and interests.
I personally do not feel safe getting out of my parked car in my driveway at night. There are registered sex offenders that live across my street. My neighbors house was broke into. Recently there have been a lot of cars being broke into. I don't feel safe because of things such as these. I am constantly in fear of all the horrific things that might happen because I live where I live.
I would not choose to live here if I could do it all over. South Beloit is not far from Rockford, IL, a city with very high crime. Rockford is far from being a safe area. That said, the cities that surround Rockford are affected by the crime and witness the overall atmosphere of danger. Responsible parents would be careful to let their children walk to the park without an adult. You don't have the freedom to walk through your neighbourhood at any given time and feel safe, something that decades ago was a given.
We don't have many cases of crime around here because it's a small neighborhood off of a busy road. We should get a neighborhood watch team to be safer but other than that it's really safe.
I enjoy adventure and sight seeing. There isn't much to see around here because it's almost all flat land. But there is a lot of great people to meet and beautiful places to live and visit.
We recently had a tornado an hour away. We also get a lot of thunderstorms and rain. Winter is usually freezing, below freezing. Welcome to Illinois.
There are so many different types of restaurants in this area. Whatever you're in the mood for, you can find easily and don't have to drive very far to get it. There are elegant high priced places, classy medium priced places, and cute but appropriate low price places. No matter where you go, you can't go wrong.
There are tons of businesses in the area. They are always clean, well organized, and the staff is almost always polite and great at their job.
