We moved to Oldham County from Michigan in 2005. We chose the county for the school system. It's very similar to the one we left in Michigan. All of the propaganda we read shows higher test scores and more college-bound courses then any other public school system in KY. There was a 4th middle school added a couple of years ago. There are also plans for the high schools to expand. OCHS is being added on to now.

We chose La Grange because it's more like it's own town rather than an extension of Louisville. We are please with our decision there. We found the ground too rocky for a fence (or a pool, not that we wanted a pool), so we put up an invisible fence to keep our dog in. She was 9 when we trained her on it and she does fine.

There are a LOT of tornado watches and warnings over the course of the year. They all seem to stay north of the Ohio River (or farther south). That works for me.

You should be able to get good value on a home here as well.

Default About Taylorsville Schools

Im my opinion Taylorsville Schools are much better than Oldham County. The town of taylorsville is a down to earth fun community. Yea we may be pretty darn small, but you know everyone and you get along with everyone. The school are good. The high school has got many programs the students can be in. My daughter is in ffa. They take alot of trips. they go to the state fair, compete in many events and competitions. Not only ffa but there are many more. The weather aint too bad, we dont have any tornadoes. You can always take a trip out to the lake, or if you really dont want to do anything in town, louisville isnt too far to travel. And forever who made the comment that taylorsville is rundown and whatever else you said you apparently aint got a clue. We may be a little town, with not much to do like Louisville but we are our own little fun town and most will agree there is always something to do. My teenage daughter who is a junior has grown up in taylorsville schools since kindergarden and has the same friends, plus some new ones. Every weekend they find something to do in town. So we aint boring.
