I am considering relocating to London, KY. I am a little concerned about the quality of public schools and it looks like the best/only non-sectarian/secular private schools are in Lexington, KY. I was told that the drive to Lexington is about 1 hr. Is this true? Can anyone recommend nice areas to live about 1/2 distance between London and Lexington which would allow me to commute to work and the kids to commute to private school. Thanks.

London is 63 miles away from Lexington and to my knowledge there aren't any secular private schools there, so your best bet would be to enroll your kids at a school in Lexington. I'd say the nicest town between London and Lexington to move to would be Berea. It's more of a cultured, art-centered town and it's about halfway between Lexington and London.

Yes there are private schools here. Cornerstone Christian Academy and there is also St. Camillus Academy (over 100 years old) in nearby Corbin. No need to enroll your kids in Lexington, the private schools here are good as well.

Default Good Elementary Schools in London

Says who?? London/Laurel County has more than three good elementary schools. Laurel County (compared to Fayette County and north of F-county) has a good school system. The teachers work hard, but do not get the credit unless they coach some type of sports. Administration has constantly changed (due to political choices). Principals have a difficult time staying put-especially Hunter Hills and South Laurel High School.
