If you want to live in New Orleans proper, I would recommend living Uptown, the Garden District, the Faubourg St. John/Parkview area, Lakeview. or Lake Vista. Except for Lakeview, these areas fared fairly well through Katrina. Lakeview was one of the higher-income areas of New Orleans, and even though progress has been relatively slow, it has been steady and its residents are committed to rebuilding. You can also find some real-estate steals in Lakeview.

As for private schools in New Orleans, you are in luck. Because of the city's Catholic heritage and overall poor state of Orleans public schools, you have per-capita probably the biggest private school system in the country. You can't go wrong in New Orleans with Newman, St. Dominic's, Sacred Heart (girls) or Ursuline's (girls). There are also excellent offerings in neighboring Jefferson Parish, but I will leave that for others.

The two top tier Jefferson Parish private schools (excluding Catholic schools) are St. Martin’s Episcopal and Metairie Park Country Day.

Of those mentioned by IloveNOLA, Isidore Newman is another top tier private, with a large Jewish student body. Ursuline is a fine school, but I think Sacred Heart is considered by many to be the top girl’s Catholic school. If you are venturing into Orleans Parish, another one to consider is Stuart Hall (all boys Catholic).

Do a lot of research before you decide which neighborhood to move to. I agree with others, good schools include St Martin's Episcopal, Newman, and Metairie Park Country Day. Be prepared for tuition to be around 15K per year.

My husband and I recently moved to the Westbank from New Orleans. Do you know of any good schools (private or public) in the area?

I don’t have any recommendations on Westbank schools. Many families on the Westbank have their children commute across the river to the Eastbank schools listed earlier in this thread. Transportation options include private bus service and carpools.

Since the OP was 3 yrs ago, I am assuming they found a school. The last post until this month was 2 yrs ago.

While the OP had a need 3 years ago, it never hurts to keep updating information. So much of the advice on the forums is from the 1st couple of years after the storm, a newcomer looking on here doesn't know what is still valid info.

I guess it's a sign of the economy that there aren't too many newcomers looking for advice after 2008.
