My husband's job is transferring to Louisville. I am looking for a community with a community center, pool, etc where we can build our home. I am looking in Oldham County because schools are a priority. We have two boys, both with autism. I would like to build a home with 5 bedrooms and around $4,000 sq. ft. Any ideas of where I should look? Or if not in Oldham County, then where?

Any advice would be appreciated!!
Thanks!

With two special needs children, I seriously would have to look at Jefferson County. There is no doubt in my mind that JCPS is one of the greatest special needs school districts in the nation. My former spouse is a retired special education teacher in JCPS. I saw the work she was doing, and listened as she spoke of what the system was doing.

Now, that being said, I know that Oldham County is a solid school system and will accommodate your children's needs beyond and above expectations. So, I would look at two locations. This year's Homearama will be in Rock Springs, just east of the Summit Shopping Center (JC) or I would build in Summerfield by the Lake, or possibly in Stonefield.

I agree with this assessment. I am not a teacher, nor ever have been a teacher, but have seen the diligent work many "Special Ed." teachers have done in several JCPS schools.

Honestly, don't know how Oldham County compares, but think your chances may be better in JCPS.
