We are moving to the Louisville area as soon as our house here in Michigan sells. Based on everything we've heard, Oldham County has the best public schools.

We visited the area this past weekend and were looking at a few subdivisions in Buckner. We drove past the schools--Buckner Elementary, the middle school & Oldham County High School. I know you can't judge a book by it's cover, but the high school appeared very old and pretty run-down. What kind of reputation does it have? Is it a good school despite appearances?

We've also heard that North Oldham schools are the preferred in Oldham County? Which elementary schools feed into North Oldham High School? Are these schools really better? What towns/subdivisions should we be looking in if we choose to send our kids to these schools?

I can read all about the schools awards, honors & test scores. I'm just hoping to find out some info from real people who have firsthand (or even secondhand) knowledge and personal opinions about the schools.

We want to choose an area to live where the best schools are located. We have three elementary-school aged kids and want the best for them.

Everyone who has already responded to some of my past posts has been extremely helpful! I really do appreciate any and all information. It is helping me feel more comfortable about our move to Kentucky.

Thanks!

Good morning. Your observations are very astute, but don't judge a book by its cover. Although there are the typical weak links in the management chain of Oldham County Schools, there are none to be found in the attention to the academic details. Oldham County Middle and High Schools are old buildings with youthful hearts. Inside of all the middle and high schools you will find technically advanced classrooms, teachers who have the opportunity to focus on teaching, and students from families who understand the value of education.

You might also wish to know that Oldham County High gets its turn at the construction wheel beginning in January as it will get a major overhaul.
