The Northeast side of town and the Southwood areas are the best parts of town. I lived in Southwood and it's my idea of the perfect kind of place to have kids.

I'm not familiar with the schools, however.

I don't know anything about the school system either, but Southwood really is beautiful, and has plenty of amenities.

I think Kilearn (sp?)Estates is supposed to be a good area.

Default Move to the NE

If you have high school kids and they are in more advanced classes, move to the NE. This area has the best schools in my opinion, the elementary and middle school are blue ribbon schools and all are ranked high on the list for best schools in FL. The families around here are great. Chiles football team has a wonderful coach. There are a lot of really smart, good kids around here, that are well rounded. We think that this is the best area for families. Southwood is a nice neighborhood, but I've heard that the schools get filled quickly and that some kids were having to be bussed to nearby schools, which are horrible.

Default Crawfordville

It is about 15 minutes south of Tallahassee with three routes in and out. It has reputable schools too. You save a little bit on housing costs and property taxes by living in Wakulla County instead of Leon County (homes in northeast Tallahassee will stretch your state income to the limit).

Chiles and Lincoln are two good HS. The NE is considered the best area. I live in Kilearn Estates. I did live in Kilearn Lakes and would highly recommend that area sp since it is zoned for Chiles.
