I will be moving to Oklahoma in july to start my new job. I am a family man that has 4 kids, and there ages are 14months, 7yr old, 14yr old, and 19 and me and my wife are looking for a great area for our kids to grow with good schools and sports because my son wrestles, play football, run track, and play golf. We are looking for a nice quiet neighborhood.

If you can give us a specific city/town you will be moving to, I'm sure someone will be happy to give you some specifics.

I live in Edmond and really like it here. We moved here about 4 years ago and have been very pleased with the schools and all they had to offer. I think they offer most anything your kids could possibly want to be involved in, and if the school doesn't offer it (such as Lacrosse or fencing) the parks and recreation department or private clubs do. We live near I-35 which makes my husbands commute pretty easy. We prefer the eastern side of Edmond to the western side because it is more hilly and wooded. There are lots of new neighborhoods all over Edmond, as well as some vey nice established neighborhoods. If you can give us more specifics about what exactly you are looking for, maybe we can point you in the right direction.

Moore is very nice as well, although I cannot give you specific details. I have been there a few times to parties in a couple of very nice neighborhoods, but I couldn't even tell you the names of them, or where they were located. I do know that they have excellent schools there as well, and will offer anything your kids might be interested in. Maybe someone else here can give you more details about the area.

When you say Putnam, I assume you are talking about the Putnam City School District here in OKC as opposed to the very tiny town of Putnam OK, which is in the middle of nowhere and probably has less than 100 people in the entire town. I must say I don't know a lot about Putnam City Schools, but what I've heard has not been very flattering. When we moved here, we were discouraged from looking there by several different people.

The main reason we choose Edmond was that it seemed like everyone my husband works with lived here and everything we read about the schools made it seem like it was where we wanted to be. We had only a very short time to find a house and move, so we didn't have time to research a lot of different areas in depth. I must say that we could not be more pleased with our choice.

I think Edmond would be the best place for you. It is very nice and has very good schools. It you chose to move near one of the Putman City Schools, then PC North would be the best of the three. It's further north and located in a much nicer part of town. There is a lot of development and new housing editions being built and low crime.
