My family of 4 (me, husband and two kids ages 5 and 7) are thinking of relocating for my husbands job to Iowa from VT. We are focusing our research in or around the Cedar Rapids area. Does anyone have suggestions on best school districts, towns to live in? What are the pros/cons of the state and areas we are looking to move?
Thank you for taking the time to reply!

You should post this in the Iowa forum. We NH-ites aren't going to be much help with this one.

Cedar Rapids is a great town, depending on what you are looking for Marion (NE side) is very nice good schools and great neighborhoods. This is mostly because Rockwell Collins (a large employer of professionals) is located in the NE area.

I have worked in Cedar Rapids SW side for over 8 years and have lived in both Iowa City and North Liberty and made the easy commute. I highly recommend North Liberty as it is within a 20 minute drive of Cedar Rapids while also being easy access to Iowa City (where the University of Iowa is) and there is a LOT of stuff to do. North Liberty is also in the final construction phases of a brand new high school which will be part of the desirable Iowa City school district.

Cedar Rapids is great too, but I can't necessarily recommend specific areas, but the rule of thumb is to avoid the SE side. I don't think you can go wrong, there are so many great places in the "corridor area". If you are going to live in Iowa, it is one of THE best places to be.

Best of Luck!

The NE side is very nice and near two very good schools, Pierce Elementary and Kennedy High School. I've lived here for 13 years, no crime in my neighborhood, safe to walk dogs at night...very, very clean and quiet.
