My best friend told me yesterday that she and her family are going to move to Oklahoma City. Her husband has a few places lined up for job interviews, but I'd really like to be able to give her a head's up if it looks like there are no good chances of getting a job. Here he worked in making paper products, but has had a few heart attacks over the last few months and can't work in something that physical. I need to know the following:

What is the job market like?

Good or bad neighborhoods/areas that they need to stay away from?

How are the schools? They have older teenagers, so it would be junior high and high school? Do they have a vocational type of school there?

Anything else that may be helpful.

Thank you!

How are the schools? They have older teenagers, so it would be junior high and high school? Do they have a vocational type of school there? Yes, in north OKC Francis Tuttle is probably one of the larger/more common VoTech schools.

Anything else that may be helpful.

As far as school, Edmond and Deer Creek as typically looked at as being one of the better school districts in the area.

Thank you!
