I am a Realtor, school district plays a part in the value of the home. If you already live somewhere-- maybe open enroll. If you are moving somewhere- move to the district you want to send your kids
Ideally I want to send my kid to a private school in Saint Paul. But my job is in Rogers. Plymouth is a central location for my wife and I, that's why we focused on there. Unless driving my kid to Saint Paul and then up to Rogers is ideal (which it's not), I'm open to the challenges of open-enrollment because it's simply not efficient to live in Saint Paul and drive to Rogers every day. Our house needs to be under $350k, which in Plymouth limits you to the Robbinsdale district.

I got lucky and attended private school as well-- Hill Murray. There is a private school ( Providence Acadamy) in Pylmouth. I know a guy that sends his kids there. Sounds like a good place-- very expensive.


I know what you mean about prices-- they have gone batty. There seems to be many offers for each house. Not enough supply, rates are going up-- things are becoming less affordable. Ive been in the business for 25 years-- haven't seen a market like this ( no inventory)


There are many decisions that can influence where you live. I hope you find the right spot!!! Let me know if I can help in any way

We ended up buying a place in the New Brighton/Saint Anthony school district. We'll consider some immersion schools or other schools once the time comes, but it's nice knowing were in a good district regardless. If we had moved just a few blocks over we'd be in the Columbia heights school district, and homes we looked at there were way more affordable than in New Brighton/St Anthony.

Apparently 1/3 of the Saint Anthony school district is made up of Columbia Heights and Minneapolis open enrollees! and the elementary school open enrollment is now closed off.

Edina's open enrollment is closed. I registered my kids but are currently on the waiting list. The main issue isn't the open enrollment but transportation. Most times open enrollment won't give you a school bus, you have to find your own way to and from.
