I have to side with Golf Gal on this one, as a Central grad now living in the Suburbs there is no comparison between the schools. We had great teachers and if you were a good student you could do fine but the undercurrent of the school made you feel just not quite safe. You had to watch what you said, who you looked at or talked to all the time. If you were a boy and got caught talking to someone else's girlfriend there was a good chance you would get beat up after school. I had a friend end up in the hospital for 2 months because another kid tripped over his foot in class and he just about killed him after school. My kids see none of this kind of behavior in their schools. Friends that have kids at Central say that things are getting progressively worse despite efforts of the schools. Racial tension is at an all time high. It wasn't bad at the elementary level, got worse in the middle schools and high school was really bad. This just isn't what we want for our kids.

Qwerty -
That's funny - that doesn't seem to match the experiences of our friends who have kids at Central. They love the school and their kids are doing very well there. Looks like th OP will have to do her own research and see what fits her best and what she wants for her kids herself. We don't seem to be much help. She should be able to find a decent apartment in her price range - probably toward the higher end.
