If you're in the upper-middle class, you don't need to ask.

You're not going to find an upper-middle class public history school, upper-middle class communities are too small and too spread out to fill an entire high school.

What most people consider upper middle class in the rest of the country can only afford to live in lower middle class (or even lower!) communities here. Welcome to your soon-to-be battered dream.

This makes no sense, if a community is filled with members of the upper-middle class than its a upper-middle class community....not a lower-middle class community.

Perhaps what you're getting at is that in some cases communities that were solidly middle-class years ago are now populated with upper-middle class folks. But I'm not sure why that is some sort of "buttered dream"....

I suppose the question is to the OP... Just what exactly is "upper middle class" to them????? The term is quite subjective, considering it is on a bell curve...

Regardless, It seems like a very very strange way to select area's or schools.... One would think looking at achievement results for a given school would be better..

Most of the high schools in South Orange County would be heavily upper middle class.

What I'm getting at is the OP is self identifying as upper middle class (at least indirectly) but probably lives in another state. Moving here, that person will not be able to afford what is considered an upper middle class area here.

For example, taking a beat-to-death example. Let's say someone lives in an upper middle class Chicagoland burb. They want to move here. To get the same quality of high school they are currently used to, they would need to move to Woodside, Palo Alto, Saratoga, etc. Ooooops.
