Nope, know very little about Edgewood City Schools. Just know where it is located, Trenton. Compared to the other areas you have inquired about, West Chester, Liberty Township, Mason, and Landen you are definitely coming downhill. You are also getting further north. Don't know where the job is, but the next thing you know you will be in Dayton.

Notice from your profile you are apparently coming from Pittsburgh. Spent a lot of time in Pittsburgh during my working career and had relatives who lived there. While both Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are Ohio River cities and have similarities they are also decidedly different. Cincinnati, once you get a few miles from the river on the Ohio side you are suddenly on a flat plateau. Farmland now converted into subdivisions. On the Kentucky side you stay with hills all the way to Tennessee and the Smokey Mountains.

I assume you are going primarily by internet data in trying to find a house in your price range, and using outfits like Zillow and Google Earth View. The are both valuable tools. In the areas from Monroe, north to Trenton and Franklin, you may find brand new houses in your price range. But believe me they are cheap crap with bedrooms difficult to get a twin bed in.

Unless you have lived here before, you really need to make a trip and drive the area. It is fine to compile a list of prospective homes, but a personal tour is required. It is hard to explain just how cut up West Chester and Liberty Townships are, a real hodge podge of developments with about zero continuity. Sure there are some very nice subdivisions and fine houses there, but next to zero continuity. The only continuity is the main roads have no sidewalks. The individual subdivisions may have sidewalks, but once you exit them you are SOL. You may be able to trot around your subdivision for exercise but that is it.

The best schools in Warren and Butler counties are simply Kings, Mason, and Lakota. The next tier down and spreading out would be Loveland and Lebanon. Don't know enough about Edgewood to place them, but definitely not 1st tier, perhaps 2nd.

Landen is a fairly large community built around a man made lake. To its credit it has continuity, a good expanse of condos and single family homes which all share common architectural features - cheap.
