I live about an hour from Rochester now but will be moving closer in a few months (hopefully my house sells soon). I'm not looking to buy, just a safe place to rent for 2 or 3 years. I have 3 small children, with my oldest starting Pre-K this year. He also has a physical disability so I would love any input anyone has on school districts that are difficult to work with or are especially accommodating when dealing with special needs students. My husband is finishing up at RIT, so the closer we can stay to the campus the better (hopefully no farther than 25 minutes). Money is a HUGE issue too, but we're willing to look long and hard for that rare deal in a great place. I know that's a lot of small things to consider, but where would you recommend I look for housing?

Go to French Court Apartments, my wife and I lived there last year. Heat is included, well insulated, quiet (thick walls), great management. It is across the street from French Road Elementary in the Brigthton School District. I know the psychologist at the school and he is outstanding and has actually won state-wide awards for his efforts. The commute to RIT, where I work, is 20 minutes on a bad day.

Not sure what your budget is, but, if available, you can get a 2 bedroom apartment for about $900 a month. I would consider it for your child to attend one of the top elementary schools in the county. There are also some other apartments complexes and townhomes in the area (French Road) I suggest you look into as well, if you are in the need of more space.

Good luck.
