i have been 2 odem like 3 time's and it is small,everyone know's everyone,every one is related somehow or another...it is far from being quiet,but i think if it is a small town u are looking 4 then it is small,but it is near the city,so that's a plus.....

I lived there and personally did not care for it, there is only a small grocery store. I did not like the schools so had my son in private school. I am hispanic and did not feel any racial issues. I have a young son and was concerned about him getting bored when he got older. There's no theatres, skating rink...ect. We had to drive a distance to get the the mall or even rent a current movie.

I was born in Odem in 1958, my grandmother lived there all her life. althought I never lived there we did visit alot when I was growing up. My greatgrandfather live there for most of his life I call Odem my home town and we still have family living there. Corpus is just 27 miles away. and if you want a video movie or
grocery go to Five Points. Five Points is Lest then five miles away.

Agree, the school system is absolutely horrible. Even the local judge still lives here, but took her kids out and put them in another school because of Odem's poor performance rating from TEA.

Since: Jan 11

Oh, and did I mention that the judge's brother is on the school board? Talk about a slap in the face!

You forgot to mention all the illegal game rooms. It's a mini Vegas, sin city. Oh and politics runs the town.

Are you kidding me? It's just as bad/good as any other town. And the school was rated academically acceptable which is average and what most other schools in the area are rated also. I don't live there; I live in corpus. But I do work there and I'm even thinking of moving from CORPUS to Odem.

If you want to move a young family there its not a good idea to move to odem . There isnt even a decent grocery store .No opportunitys for further education,or good paying jobs,or housing.Why raise children in an environment thats 20 years behind.Too many druggies in a small town can be dangerous and to your family.
