It's ok, some people are really nice and some people are not. There is alot of drugs, but not as much as neighboring cities. There are nice parts of verona and not so nice parts of verona, for example, some places seem very high class and the area is generally very clean, but there is also places with sex offenders, trash everywhere, and random condoms laying on the ground. We are usually very accepting of people of color and the LGBTQIA+ community which is nice. There's nothing special about verona. I've lived here my entire life and honestly I am very excited to go to college and explore a different city.

Close knit community with great academics and division one high school sports. I have lived there for ten plus years while being raised in the Verona Area School District. I the schooling systems everyone pushes you to be the best version of yourself. The neighborhood families are very close to each other and often host block parties. This is a very safe environment as the verona area police department is very good at staying on top of all issues within the community. You can definitely feel the family friendliness of the area. One can especially see this when the whole community gathers for the annual homecoming parade. Overall this is a great neighborhood!
Ever since my family moved to my neighborhood in 2006, a vast majority of my neighbors have remained there. Very little has changed, besides the occasional move-in and move-out. Almost every neighbor has a pet, which can have its perks and drawbacks! My neighborhood is extremely family-friendly, which makes it an ideal place to raise a family. In spite of all of these aspects, I do occasionally wish that we would take more initiative to spend time together. Now that the younger kids have grown up, we rarely have time to spend together.
