I have been looking into relocating to Kentucky - the Corbin/London area -and have opened other threads addressing various aspects of the area. However, I would greatly appreciate some opinions related to the local school districts, particularly from those who have first-hand experience.

The consensus seems to be that Corbin has the best schools in the region. Some have said that there are certain schools within London which are also pretty good (e.g. Bush Elementary, Cold Hill Elementary, South Middle School and South High School).

Could you please tell me what you like or dislike about the schools in Corbin? Specifics would be great.

Could you please tell me what you like or dislike about the schools in London? Again, specifics would be great.

If there are specific schools which stand out, could you tell me the names of those schools and what makes them appealing?

I have three boys: 1) who will be entering the first grade, 2) who will be entering the seventh grade, and 3) who will be entering the ninth grade. Ideally, we would want to live in an area which has a great school for each of the boys. I greatly appreciate your comments.

Corbin and London have mediocre schools. Anywhere outside of the major metros in KY (Bowling Green, NKY, Lex, Louisville, etc) will be mediocre at best.

Then I would highly suggest the Highway 192 area (West Laurel Road) in London. There are numerous subdivisions along the road or right off that road. The district is Cold Hill Elem, South Laurel Middle, South Laurel High.
