Hello

We will be relocating in 3 months from the UK. Can anyone recommend the best Catholic or public elementary schools please in the Cincinnati area? This will really help me identify which area to live.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

Hi majjsu,
Cincinnati is a good sized city. Tell us where your employment will be or possibly what type of neighborhood you'd prefer. There are many great school districts and a plethora of good private schools.

This will help us narrow down what to suggest.

Hello

The place of work will be Downtown. With regards to area, not really sure as was thinking go with the best schools and take it from there. If I had the choice, a family location if that makes sense. Thanks for such a fast reply!

Summit Country Day and St. Mary's in Hyde Park are solid.

Our Lady of the Visitation and St. Jude are excellent options on the westside.

I second checking out St. Mary's in Hyde Park and Summit Country Day (also in Hyde Park). St. Mary's is a very nice parish based grade school (K-8th grade) while Summit Country Day (k-12th grade)is an elite private school without a parish attached.

While you're in the neighborhood, I would also suggest Hyde Park School which is part of Cincinnati Public Schools. It is grades k-6 and serves as a neighborhhod school as well as Cincinnati Gifted Academy. Many of the families are international which provides a more diverse community.

Identifying the "best" Catholic elementary school is going to be tough. For one, they are run by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati therefore will have similar, if not identical, curriculums. Like many public schools, it is probably going to boil down to the socio-economic demographics that feed into the schools, with one significant caveat - you're electing (paying) to attend a parochial school. This more often than not translates into engaged parents, a higher-than-average household income, and if a student perpetually misbehaves they can be tossed out of school. Contrast this with public districts where the students may or may not have parents that are involved, many students attend as a form of public-assisted daycare, and repeat offenders are often given significant opportunities to come back to school before being expelled for good.

My advice would simply be to look at the neighborhoods with more favorable demographics. Anything east of I-71 should be fine. I doubt you will find much difference in the parochial school serving Madeira or Sycamore Township as the ones serving Loveland or Landen. It's all pretty much going to be excellent according to state rankings.

Hello Zen Master, thank you for your comments. You have hit the nail on the head, in theory I was hoping for an easy answer but in practice it is hard, especially as I don't know the area, nor the differences in education, as my 5 year old is at a Catholic primary school in the UK, which is a public school and no fees are paid. I was hoping to do like for like. I wanted to compare the differences between public versus private, as I have never had to pay a school before. I think we get the opportunity to come and visit, was hoping to tie down the schools/areas to view. So will look at your suggestions.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.
