Housing turnover means enrollment boom in Lindbergh Schools : News

...thought this was interesting since the topic of schools pops up now and again. Sounds like Crestwood and the rest of near south county in Lindbergh schools is becoming a pretty sought after area at least for families with school age kids.

I saw this article, and was fairly surprised. I was somewhat under the impression that the decline of Crestwood Mall was somewhat representative of the decline in the area...but I guess not.

They've been struggling with an overcrowding issue for quite some time now. It will be interesting to watch what happens with this bond proposal.

I think a contributing factor to this increased enrollment is not only housing turnover, but switches from private to public education by many families. With the economy having been how it's been these past few years, many families that formerly enrolled in Catholic schools are finding themselves having to stick with public schools as private education becomes more and more expensive. I would know, I'm the only kid in my family that will get a private high school education, as I'm the only one my parents can afford.

Housing costs are going up there as well, relative in Crestwood said the neighbors house just sold for 250K 8 years ago same house sold for 175K - granted they did redo the kitchen - still considering the loss of value 2008-11 - that is a pretty good return - things are even better down the street in Sunset Hills, the housing there competes with the nicer parts of Chesterfield and Des Peres.
