Perhaps you did not look hard enough. It is ranked A+ by niche

You are replying to the wrong person LOL. Of course it is 'ranked' but the online sites now suck badly.
They focus on random criteria.

IL report cards is as good as it gets, spare perhaps some of the high school rankings in US News. Grain of salt all around though.

Default Would love to know more about this specific area

We call it SoMa because it's south of Maple Ave. Smaller 3 bedrooms sell in the 600s and larger homes are in the 700s. It's a great neighborhood north of the NU football stadium, between Greenbay road & Sheridan road. Many of the neighbors teach at Northwestern and it has the liberal artsy vibe you mention. SoMa has Friday night happy hours at rotating houses from Memorial Day to Labor Day, a neighborhood Easter egg hunt, a kids 4th of July parade, block parties, a book club, and movie going group. We are also walking distance from the EL station at 4th & Linden. 4th & Linden also has a little shopping district with a great pie shop, kids play place, coffee shop, comic book store, pizza joint, music store and a kids coding school. We regularly walk to the beach, downtown Wilmette (1 mile) and downtown Evanston (1.5 miles). PM me if you want more information.
Hi, I saw that this post was a couple years old, and am just wondering if you had any more information about this area? Specifically, if there are many young kids around, or is it mainly more established families or empty nesters? Thanks for any info!

It's still a lovely and architecturally distinguished area, and very safe. There seems to be a shortage of kids everywhere on the North Shore. I hope there is a next generation; we'll see.

Most of the local schools have been forecasting a slow drop in enrollments, but I can assure you that this will remain a favorite place for families with young children. My Evanston neighborhood has significantly more children than it did when I was a child, and I am part of the second most populous generation.

We lived in SoMa for almost 10 years. We moved out to DuPage County 2 years ago. I LOVE Wilmette and we visit often. There are a lot of kids there. The area south of Maple Ave has a lot of smaller homes and many new neighbors moved there from the city. In fact, we sold our house to Chicago residents that moved the summer before their son started kindergarten. While we were living in our Wilmette house 10 kids were born on our street in 2010-2012. In one block - ten new babies. East of GreenBay, north of Isabella, south of Maple, west of Sheridan = SoMa. They have regular Friday night happy hours in the summer hosted by different families and a big block party in July.
