i saw a few things on here but they all ended up being debates on why people from california are over populating your area. Or about race etc goverment stuff. I just want to know about the catholic schools, what there is to do for fun? were a family in our early 30's with one child. I have lived in california for about 29 yrs and 1 yr in louisana. I want to know exactly what is in store when we move there????

OK. Where do you live in SoCal, and what do you like and dislike about your area beyond what you've already mentioned?

The only way to know for sure what is in store for you is to come up and spend a few weeks visiting. Not really the most practical or economic thing to do, but it's really the only way you will know for sure. I definitely suggest Boise over Eagle given what you are looking for in schools. Bishop Kelly is the local Catholic High School and there are a few Catholic Elementary schools around. What age is your child? As far as bad areas are concerned, there really aren't any in per se in Boise. There are just Good and Less Desirable.

Welcome to the Treasure Valley!

People here tend to stay out of others business.
You'll want to take the initiative to say "hi" to your neighbors, or else they'll probably just assume you dont want to be bothered and leave you alone.

Right now for fun, I'm floating the Boise River.
Next month when it cools off a bit, there's the Idaho Shakespeare Festival.
And of course, Fall means BSU Footbal!

The main Catholic elementary schools are St. Mary's (State St. and 28th), St. Joes's (8th & Fort) and Sacred Heart (Latah & Cassia). St. Mary's & St. Joe's (St. Joseph's) are near downtown, Sacred Heart is on the bench. I haven't heard a bad thing about any of these schools but the parents who I've met who really RAVE about their school have been from St. Joe's. This school is in the heart of the north end which puts you very close to all sorts of kid-friendly activities. I think Boise Family Magazine's website could be a great resource for you to get a feel for kid activities--there are so many things to do all of the time in our area--it's great!

Living in the north end is pretty expensive--some of the most expensive real estate in town and consists mostly of older homes. I love the north end, but it's not for everyone. If you are used to newer homes in planned a planned community setting, you may want to consider west Boise, Eagle, Meridian or Hidden Springs. There aren't Catholic schools in these communities but there are a number of private schools as well as quality public and charter schools. I don't know what it's like where you're from but I have friends who live in California/Arizona where public school is not an option and the only alternative is Catholic school. It's not like that here--there are lots of options. So, if it's not a religious reason you're thinking Catholic schools, that might be helpful to know.

Hope that helps!!
