45415
45417

That's an unusual requirement, but I'll work with it:


45322 - north of 70 is likely to be more stable and thus better
45414 - Mixed, again north of 70 is fine, south is closer to Northridge/Miller Lane area, which is full of seedy characters. Vandalia schools are better than Huber, which is better than Northridge, so look carefully to see which school district the house lies in
45377 - Vandalia's generally a good area
45406, 45405, 45415, 45417 - don't touch any of these areas with a 10 foot pole if you're coming from out of state

Hope this helps

What's wrong with 45415?

I've lived in this zip code area before and will make my own observations on this. I will first point out that 45415 is a mix of Clayton and Harrison Township, which means you have to pay attention to the school district boundary (generally Westbrook Road).

From observations driving by the area, househunting, and living in the area, I will say this about the Northmont portion of 45415. The far southeast corner of Clayton appears to be somewhat run down and isn't particularly nice in my personal opinion. I would not be a huge fan of that particular area myself. East of N Main is actually mostly apartment living (of varying quality)/commercial except for that corner. That being said, the northwest side of 45415 - centered around Old Salem/Garber - is pretty nice from what I can see. It just depends.

The Clayton-Northmont section of 45415 will have the best houses at the best prices. But Northwood Elementary is now Northmont's WORST Elementary school. (Northwood used to be the Centerville-Oakwood caliber Elementary and today it's Trotwood; worst test scores, kids are out of control, etc.) A lot of young families move into this area and figure out the Northwood problem and then abruptly move again.

From what I've heard - and I get the inside scoop - the other Northmont Elementary schools are still solid. And of course, the High School is brand new so for the time being the district still stacks up well compared to Dayton's best.
