Just something to take note of; not sure if city only options are what you are after. I know it can be difficult to get actual useful info on the city data forum, and the general us city v city forum is probably though, about the worst place to ask this question if you are serious about getting info about schools.
Just FYI, all most of the highly rated charter schools (Citizens Academy, E-Prep, Campus International, Bard Early College, MC2STEM), and all of the highly rated magnet schools (John Hay, Cleveland School of the Arts) are in the city itself.

I'm 20 something and single in Cleveland and think it's a great city. Lots of things to do, opportunities to meet people, etc.

For real though...stalking yo...

There's power in the group mind, and the group mind has consistently voted for Cleveland.
Columbus seems very nice, but what kills it for me is that virtually every article I've read on it references the college and how the streets clear out during college games, etc. That's swell, but it's a sign that it's probably not the right place for me.
Indy seems really great, but is apparently a bit more conservative and all things being equal, I'll pass on that.

There are other things of course. Even if Columbus wasn't a college town and even if Indy wasn't in a conservative area, Cleveland would still have them beat. The sheer variety of activities, excellent (suburb) schools, and diversity of industries pretty much hits all my buttons.

p.s.--I'm a guy.

^ Most importantly, though, is that the OP finalized his own assessment of the three cities and decided that Cleveland met his needs most of all. All things considered, he made the right choice--in so many ways, Cleveland's a "class act" that the other two cities couldn't even begin to match.

Oh, but we all know the discussion won't end with the OP making a final decision!
Cleveland's a fine choice.
