Norton Commons is built very dense like the city...that is the idea. Tomocox is our Oldham expert. I have no specific recs other than telling you that you virtually cannot go wrong there.

Default We are getting too close...

Florida Gal, moving is a terribly stressful event no matter how many times one moves in their life. I sense in your writings the concerns you have. Fortunately, you have had the foresight to start getting a "feel" for the areas which might suit your needs. I am honored to serve you; however, now, I recommend that you sorta back off on the specific subdivisions of consideration.

Here is my recommendation assuming that you don't have to make an immediate decision. Take the information that you have received and slowly "walk back over" all the places. STX is likely right in his opinion that you won't like the size of Woodford County; however, you must decide things now that time will require. For example, lets assume only for the sake of this illustration that Woodford County while too small, still offers you a perfect score card for all the other criteria. What you must now do is to value that size vs perfection matter. In other words, now you must handicap your game and add "weighted values" to the criteria. What perfect attribute will you give up to have another perfect attribute.

There are other good programs in Jefferson County, but the schools named above are the only ones that have a consistantly good reputation in all they do.
You are absolutely right. Traditional schools are very hard to get into unless you get in them during elementary school but it is worth getting into the lottery to try though.
