Looking at renting a house in the Evergreen School District in the Sunnyside/5 Corners neighborhood, by the 205 & 76th st. Can any tell me if this is a safe
area and a good school district ?

PS. we consider ourselves good neighbors.

Actually, that isn't a bad area. And the parts of it that were REALLY bad have been cleaned up over the last few years. It's one of those areas where you'll find better and worse around. You're kind of in a happy medium. (My aunt and uncle used to have a house very near there.)

The Evergreen SD is one of the biggest and best in the state. What ages are your kids? The high schools aren't bad, but there can sometimes be a HUGE disparity between elementary and middle schools within the same districts. My cousins attended the schools in that area and did very well, if you don't mind anecdotal evidence.

The ESD has all the advantages and disadvantages of a large district. Getting through to upper administration can be a maze of mind-boggling proportions. But you also have the resources available for kids with special needs whether they be Autism, Talented and Gifted programs, or behavioral issues.

If you want specifics on a particular school, PM me. My aunt is an elementary school principal in the district and I can pick her brain for you. (The same aunt that used to live in the abovementioned area.)
