I'm still trying to figure out how mentioning the fact that Anderson Township is legally prohibited from levying an income tax equates to being a "CPS hater".

nindels3, you've been given some good tips as far as suburban districts are concerned. Since your kids seem to have varied interests, a larger school district, such as Sycamore or Mason, might be a good fit for your family. Mariemont ... Well , it is a beautiful little town and a well-regarded school district, but the houses are expensive and some people say it's a bit on the snobbish side.

Welcome to Cinicnnati, good luck to you, and don't mind the inane bickering that goes on here at times. We like to exercise our debating skills.

It's all in the context. You gotta read the fine print.

or...

After a while threads sort of run together along certain topics.

Also, to the OP, did you ever mention where in the Cincinnati metro you or your spouse would be working? The Cincy area can be rather sprawl oriented (as noted by Jmeck). If you are working in Colrain Township, you probably don't want to live in Anderson and vice-a-versa.

If the OP has answered this question, sorry for the redundancy.

As I said, maybe we should pay more attention to what the OP says than our own personal desires.

Thank you, everyone for such wonderful information!! I think that a somewhat larger school (say, 1000+ students) in a suburb would be ideal for us. So, we are going to check out Forest Hills and Sycamore. Again, thank you and I already have a good feeling about the friendliness of Cincinnati folks!

Your description of a larger school (1000+) students in Cincinnati is probablly more likely a medium school size. Forest Hills and Sycamore are in the size range you cited.

Sycamore is in 3 different political jurisdictions, Blue Ash, Montgomery, and parts of Symmes Township. These are all somewhat upscale neighborhoods so home cost may be an issue.

Forest Hills, in Anderson Twp. will likely have a selection of housing on a more modest price scale, though it has the upper end also.

Good luck in your hunting and hope you will settle nicely in Cincinnati.

nindels3: Just throwing my two cents worth in, the Forest Hills School District (Anderson Twp and Newtown, Ohio) has been rated by the State of Ohio Dept of Education with Excellent with Distinction the last 11 years. We have two very good high schools in our area Anderson H.S. and Turpin H.S. Good luck on your search.
