Hello again,

Thanks to all who helped us find the highlands, we bought in Belknap (40205) and are looking forward to settling in at the end of the month. Next on the list of things to do is to figure out schools for the kids, ages 2 and 6.

I am learning the JCPS process, and will complete the application soon for my son, entering first grade. We are in Cluster 13, so I will choose Bloom or St. Matthews as our first choice, and plan to apply to some combination of Brown, Brandeis, Audubon, and Greathouse Shryock. Any insights on these JCPS schools or others I should consider?

We are applying for public schools late in the year, and after kindergarten, so we also prepared to send him to private school. I've been interested in the model school at Sacred Heart because of the IB curriculum and the arts focus, but it seems a bit far away. Are theor other private schools with progressive curriculums? I know many schools are Christian or Catholic but welcome others; we are not religious, are there schools where the kids or family might feel odd or left out?

Lastly, what daycares or preschools (for age 2) in the highlands are highly regarded?


Thanks for your thoughts,
Trysh

Sacred Heart Model school is less than 15 mins away from you. The closest great schools to you are St. Agnes, St Raphael, the Highlands Latin School, Collegiate, St Francis of Assisi, St James, de paul School (special needs) and probably a few others. All those are private schools within 5 minutes of your location in Belknap! If you are willing to drive 15 mins, there is probably another 10-15 schools to look at. If you want to drive 30 mins, you can look at any private school in the metro area. I would guess there is around 50-60 private elementary schools in metro Louisville.
