Well, we are definitely moving to Sioux City. I really need some info, I haven't been there yet, and my first chance will be over Christmas break. I really would like some info on the schools. I am trying to decide between the North schools, (Clark, NMS, NHS) and the East side (Sunnyside, EMS, EHS). What are the pros and cons of each? Would love to hear from someone who currently has kids in one of the districts. I've been looking online at housing and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on the market right now. I've been told that unemployment is low, and maybe that is why?

Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Give it a bit of time, you will get some answers here. I don't live there now but I would suggest you do a search on c/d of the past Sioux City threads. That may be of some help reference schools and housing. The links below might help reference the floods, crime questions and houses for sale.

scout371, i live on the north side of s.c., both school districts are good choices, wealth of residents are about the same for both schools, they are both good on teaching and athletics. what east has for it is the proximity to the malls, target, khoels, buffalo wild wings ect. both east and north side has a walmart and major grocery stores. young up and coming families tend to live on east side while north side tends to maybe attract established doctors, lawyers ect. about the floods, this didn't touch housing in sioux city, just a riverfront park area, did flood fancy homes in south dakota.

I grew up on the north side (Cheyenne Blvd area) and you won't experience flooding up there because it's very hilly. I would say the same for the areas of Morningside you are looking at. I don't see much of a difference in schooling or demographics in either area. Both are solid as investor1900 indicated. I love the character of the homes in the Country Club area. Some really need renovation but gorgeous architecture on so many of them. Commute is just generally not an issue in those parts so go where you find a house you love. If you need a realtor recommendation, DM me.

Side note: My parents now live in Dakota Dunes. They did not get flooding on their street but much of the rest of the area had either significant or some flooding. As much as it's a pretty place to live, I'd personally avoid it.

Here's a house just down the street from where I grew up. Ted Waitt (founder of Gateway Computers) lived in this house. It's an example of one being sold because the current owners of it live in the Dunes and are having to redo because of the floods. You might find more stuff coming on the market in the next few months for this very same reason.

I have children in the East school district (Nodland) but have friends with kids in the North district (Clark). We are both very happy with the education and opportunities that our children are receiving. Check out www.locatesiouxcity.com/home for a great site with plenty of resources. You can email and request additional specific information there as well.

The weather is pretty comparable to Illinois. We hit 50 degrees on Saturday! Although rare, it was a nice reprieve from the normal temps in the low 30's. January and February are usually the harshest months with highs in the teens and 20's.
