My husband is possibly taking a job in Bowling Green KY. I would love some input on what the nicer areas in or around BG are. I have my youngest son who is 14 that will be coming with us. So schools and sports are important. Would love a house with some land but don't really want to live too rural if the schools arent good. Any suggestions?

Default RE: Relocating from az to bowling green

Hopefully I can be of some help. I went to Greenwood High School, so I'm rather fond of it. There are 4 high schools in Warren County. Three of them are "county" schools and links to their sites can be found here: high (broken link)

The "city" school is Bowling Green High School and their page is here: Bowling Green High School (http://www.b-g.k12.ky.us/Schools/bghs/ - broken link)

In my bias opinion I would prefer to go to Warren Central or Greenwood High School. If you want to have a better football team look toward Warren Central. You're not going to find a house with alot of Land (for sale) in the city school district in fact if any exist I don't know where they are. BGHS is probably alright if you want to look into it but I never liked it enough to want to go there. (good football team) Warren East High School is in my opinion where 90% of the country boy's go, I went to the middle school (WEMS) and there was alot of students that were going to go back to the farm life when they got past whatever school they thought they had to have. They didn't seem to care and the teachers seemed to have it rub off on them.

To go to GHS you would need to live out in Plano, Alvaton, or parts of Richpond and you can find houses out there that do have land although with the current direction things are going everything is turning into subdivision. WCHS you would look for a place out Browning, Rockfield, or parts of Richpond.

There is also a local college with 18,525 students enrolled, it's a nice university. In my opinion it's a well kept secret.

if there's anything else I can tell you let me know, i just threw this together off the top of my head so I'm not sure how helpful it is.

Greenwood High is your best option IMO. Greenwood covers the southern/southeastern portion of Warren County. You can be pretty much out in the country with 20+ acres and still be in the Greenwood district, if you have the means and the desire to do so. Areas off of Cemetery Road (Hwy 234), Scottsville Road (Hwy 231), Plano Rd (County Rd 622) and Three Springs Road (County Rd 884) in the southern portion of the county will get in the the Greenwood district. There are other areas that are more suburban on the south edge of the city that are nice and also put you in the Greenwood district as well.

Thanks so much for the info. I was kinda leaning towards Greenwood just from the info I have read. I have seen alot of homes with land, but how do I know if horses are allowed?

I don't know what the regulations are concerning horses. I would think any property designated as a farm could have horses. Check on this webisite below. You might have to call the county offices to figure that one out.

Would the Greenwood High areas be considered lower crime areas?

I can't think of any high crime areas in the Greenwood district. There are perhaps a couple apartment complexes that you'd want to avoid.
