I might possibly be relocating to VA Beach in the early part of Spring next year. I'm wondering what would be a good area that isn't too busy and has good elementary schools. 3rd grade to be exact. I'm looking for a nice neighborhood. Not necessarily an "upper class" but not a bad area either. Thanks in advance.

Smile Va Beach relo

I live in the 23454 area code, and have a son that just finished first grade at Three Oaks elementary (he attended kindergarten here too). I highly recommend, the school is only four years old, principal and teachers are wonderful, and high parental involvement. The other elementary school - Strawbridge is also very good. The same can be said for the respective middle and high schools (Kellam/Ocean Lakes HS's). The area has some established as well as new housing developments. I feel prices are still high, but have come down due to the downturn. It is a nice area, I like it hear. I moved down here in '99 from Philly, and I wouldn't move back (I do visit often!). Good luck!

You gotta be more specific, VA Beach has many many good neighborhoods with good elementary schools, and relatively few bad neighborhoods with bad elementary schools. Unless you have more criterias, you'd be better off asking which neighborhoods to avoid. But personally i'd recommend the Alanton neighborhood, its an enclosed neighborhood surrounded by water with only 2 main entry ways into the subdivision. And at the center of the neighborhood is Alanton elementary and a really nice Rec center. Very quiet, very little traffic, it's middle class to upper middle class, with some extremely high end homes in the back of the neighborhood. And it's only maybe 10 mins away from the highway. But being that it's an established neighborhood and it's proximity to Cox HS neighborhood a little bit north, your going to pay alot more than similar but newer subdivision in the southern new development areas of VB.
