I enjoy Trotwood and my friends who live in the neighborhood. Most of the neighborhoods have nice homes and apartments that people keep nice and clean. The streets are not all the best to drive on sometimes but I am sure they will work on that when they can. There used to be more clothing stores and restaurants in the area, but things have changed. I am not sure why more businesses will not open in the area. I have made a lot of friends while living in Trotwood, OH, and I have had a great high school experience so far. My teachers care about me as a person and they have taught me well. I feel proud to be apart of the Trotwood-Madison School district although the state report cards said we are failing as a district. I believe I have worked hard at Trotwood High School because most of my teachers really do care about me as a student-athlete. I wish there was a nice community center in the neighborhood for kids to hang out and be involved in positive activities.

I love my neighborhood. The neighbors are nice and my neighborhood is safe. The only thing I dislike about my community is the vacancy of businesses.
Most neighborhoods in trotwood are quiet and kept neat and clean. Not really much to do as far as fun on a daily basis but there are community activities and festivities in the summer. Trotwood is very accessible to various highways.
