hello!!
We are going to be relocating very, very soon to Oldham County!!
We are looking at homes in both Briar Hill and Hillcrest this coming w/end.

could anyone help me with the following>

1. what public school for briar hill? (elementary)

2. what public school for hillcrest? (elementary)

3. i read there is a preschool in one of them, which one and how is it? how old do you have to be?

4. Comments on the gifted/talented program? my son is currently in a gifted program here in florida. i spoke to asst principal at one of the schools and she said my son needs to be re-tested, which i'm fine with. Currently, he is in a program with all gifted kids - all day. From what i understand, it is run a little different up there. Tell me what you think of it!

5. Is the census really 2,000? (wow - sounds little)

6. What type of fitness centers do you have in crestwood?
(golds gym?)

7. how far a drive to louisville?

8. enough snow for mild sleigh riding in the front yard?

9. types of hobbies up there?

10. and lastly, for my son, do kids play pokemon on nintendo ds?

Thanks for all the input.!!

Public school for Hillcrest is Goshen Elementary-GREAT school! Lots of parental involvement & the kids are great! Teachers do a great job w/the kids & are very easy to reach, they get back to you right away, most have or are working on Master's degrees -lots of fun stuff throughout the year. The principle is great as well. Easy for kids to make new friends as most kids in Hillcrest are transplants from other areas of the country. All the technology was updated this past year as well. No preschool in Goshen (maybe Buckner has the preschool?), but there's a fabulous preschool (St. John's preschool) right across the street from Hillcrest that has probably the best preschool program in the area.

They will test your son for G&T & he will be placed appropriately. They do a nice job challenging all the students at Goshen & at the Middle School.

Not sure about the Census, but I think Goshen Elementary has about 700 students k-5.

Probably the closest fitness center to Hillcrest is LAC on Westport Rd. Has everything but a pool.

You can get to downtown in about 20-25 minutes from Hillcrest.

Depends on the winter for sledding-not much snow last year.

Whatever your hobby is, you can find someone else in Hillcrest that does it as well. Even though the neighborhood is big, there are lots of people from all over the country who live there-I'm sure several have moved from Florida like yourselves. There's the usual Bunco, Book clubs, swim team (very laid back!), etc. in the neighborhood-again, making it easy to make friends.

Lastly, yes the kids play Pokemon on DS!!!

Hope it helps!!

I advise you to look at the Oldham County Board of Education website: Oldham County Schools Web as your first stop. You might also look at Welcome to OldhamCounty.com! for lots of additional information. We live on Sunset Lane in one of the older sections of Briar Hill and we just love it! The Oldham County Family Y is a very good overall fitness center serving a full range of ages and fitness needs; however, the advice "schools" gave you about LAC on Westport Rd is very good too.

What zip code would you suggest in Oldham as a starting point? 1 girl in high school, 1 in grade school, house under $500,000.00 on an acre at least?

Thx.

Thanks to Tomocox for covering the fast growing NE suburbs. I admittedly lack a lot of knowledge about this area.
