However, given this possible culture in Cincy our kids could still be the odd ones out in their neighborhood if all of the others go to private school.
Balderdash! Your kids will be fine. Forest Hills is a very solid school district. I can't see private schools being any advantage over the public district.

Turpin's OGT scores saw it ranked s high 7th in the state of Ohio in the past 5 years. In fact the current US News and World Report has Turpin ranked in the top 25 of Ohio High Schools, Anderson did not even crack the top 50.

And in sports:

Football is the only sport in which Anderson can claim superiority, however while Anderson was founded in 1920, it has had one state championship in football and I believe one other at most, while Turpin has had 7 state championships alone between the boys and girls soccer teams alone, not to mention a championship in women's xc and I believe one or two others. In fact Anderson's mens soccer team has not beat Turpin's in more than two decades. I could go on with other sports Swimming, Tennis, Lacrosse etc. but it'd just be a waste of time

Soccer - now that's the REAL way to choose a school !

There was a day when High School was the culmination of one's scholastic career. So HS graduations were filled with raucous celebrations. That is still true today for a large percentage of students.

Instead of such things as soccer or football teams, or other measurements, look up the most meaningful one - what percentage of graduates have gone on to college over the last 10 years. And then try and find the even more meaningful one which I believe most HS do not compile - what percentage of them graduated college.

You tell me. Somebody said 1 high school should be picked over another due to the perceived sports teams.

Not at all the entirety of my argument, the first stats I put in my last post centered on academics, only after that did I discuss the topic of sports. You then responded by making fun of soccer.

It is only fair to tell the op the statistics for the sake of information.

And yes if you want your kid to play college sports/receive athletic scholarships than I would say the athletics have some sort of relevance.
