I may be relocating to Louisville in a few months and would like some feedback on the city, schools and places to live. I have 12 and 15 year old daughters and will work at Galen College. I have a brother in Cinci and would like to live on the northern side of Louisville. Any ideas on schools, neighbor hhods, etc. Thanks all!

He means in Prospect, ie close to I-71 and Cinci. I'd recommend Norton Commons and Oldham County

I have been accused of blindly recommending Oldham County. I disagree. I try to recommend shoes that fit. Most children receive superior educations in Oldham County Middle and High Schools while being 15-20 minutes to work and less than 75 to downtown Cincinnati.

To the OP: Considering all factors, I'd vouch for:

1. Northeast Jefferson Co., along Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) between US 42 and Old Henry Road.

2. Oldham County

Both areas are close to shopping, great schools, and are very safe and within 1 hr. 20 min. of downtown Cincinnati.

You will find Tom and I disagreeing very little in regards to Oldham County. Tell us a little bit about the place you live now, and we can try to zero things in a little bit better for you.

If your children are in Public school. Definately Oldham County. In Jefferson County your children will be subject to 2-4 long bus rides daily and have no choice to where you send them basicly. Plus here in Jefferson our levels have fallen behind most of the State.
