We have some friends that are moving to the Detroit area and they are looking for an area outside of north Detroit that has good school and family oriented. They don't want to be in the city but outside of it. They are in the early 30s with kids 6 and 5. So looking for elementray info as far as school. Told them I would post here for them. Any info would be great. Thanks so much.

Roseville has very good schools, and taxes are lower then other cities, but have them watch the video I posted on the tread "why is Detroit 80% black" so they don't look at Detroit.

It depends on what their budget is. The northern suburbs of Detroit are very nice. The wealthiest and most prestige, I suppose you can call them, are Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, West Bloomfield, and Birmingham. All of these communities have very good schools, Bloomfield Hills is one of the best in the nation. If these communities are to expensive they can go with some of the communities around them, such as Royal Oak, Beverly Hills, and Franklin. I believe that some of the areas or all, I can't be 100% sure, in Beverly Hills can go to Birmingham Public Schools which are very good schools.

A few of the other northern suburbs that I also like and have good schools and are great for raising a family are Troy, Rochester Hills, Rochester, and Waterford. Just avoid Pontiac in this area.

They did not give any information on their budget, but if you can afford it then those are the nicest northern suburbs of metro Detroit. And really the Michigan taxes are not that bad, you should look at some of the other states in the country, New York, New Jersey, California, Connecticut all have taxes that will blow your socks off! I am not a total liberal democrat or anything but republicans have to stop talking about high taxes, high taxes, high taxes. Taxes are just a part of life that you have to deal with.

The most important point is where they will be working. The north detroit suburbs are a huge area. Also consider that the Oakland County is not your only option. There are nice areas north of Macomb County also: Shelby Twp, Sterling Heights, Utica, Macomb Twp, Washington Twp are some. They are safe, clean and the schools are good.
