Walnut Hills is not the only good option for CPS high schools. High schools in CPS are city wide and aren't sectioned off by neighborhoods.

Cincinnati Public Schools, Schools

In keeping your options open, I would call CPS and find out more about what high schools are available, and see if any of them fit what you are looking for. CPS has a range of schools, from excellent to not so good. Personally, I like my Cincinnati neighborhood enough that I have my child enrolled in CPS and also know a lot of parents who do likewise.

I don't know enough about what you are after to say that you should live within the city limits or not. I can say there (and as has been noted) are excellent private schools open to you as well.

So:

1 - Live in Cincinnati proper and select the right high school for your child(ren) or do private schools

2 - Live in suburban Cincinnati and trade off urban amenities for "easy" school options

No right or wrong really, just preference. Please feel free to direct message me. Even though my child in in elementary school, I can find out more information for you on high schools in CPS.

Thank you all for the helpful information. Clearly I have some more research to do! I am visiting next month and will definitely be checking out the Wyoming and Anderson neighborhoods now along with a few others. My oldest is seven so I still have some time if we wanted to go the private school route with him for high school. One of my contact points in the area is a grad of an all-boys high school (can't remember the name), and told me single-sex Catholic schools are popular in town. So at the moment, a good public school would suffice (my other two are not kindergarden age yet), but I will look into private for the future.

Nahhhhh ... whatever number of homes are for sale in Wyoming, they will be interesting, and set in a pretty (worthwhile) town. The OP's price point allows him a pretty big range of choices.

Oh! And did I ever mention that I love Wyoming?
