Relocating to Toledo area. Black woman with an 8 year old son. Diverse good school system is very important. What are my options in the Toledo area?

I would look around the Holland/Springfield Township area and the southern part of Sylvania. Those are the two most diverse suburban districts, and both have solid academic reputations. For cheaper options in the city proper, there are parts of West Toledo and South Toledo that feed into decent magnet schools.

I would agree with Cincy. As far as elementary schools go, those are more specific to their immediate neighborhoods, and might not be quite as diverse. I guess it depends on what you desire particularly. The schools that are not in the inner city, but that are still within the City of Toledo (such as Start, Bowsher, Rogers, and Waite High Schools and the schools feeding into them.....as well as the independent Washington School District which is Whitmer High School) would all be fairly diverse. How "good" TPS schools are though is a matter of opinion though and as I did not attend them I cant really say. Springfield School District (Holland) is moderately diverse I suspect and would be a decent quality option. I would say Maumee might even be alright diversity wise.

The inner city schools like Scott and Woodward and their elementaries and jr highs. Being in the lesser income neighborhoods, near crime and such, the atmosphere for education could be more difficult.

On the other end of the spectrum, the suburban school districts arent going to be nearly as diverse either. Districts like Perrysburg, Sylvania, and Ottawa Hills and maybe Bedford and Anthony Wayne to some extent....are all middle to upper class areas with excellent schools. Districts such as Rossford and Oregon are also mostly middle class with adequate schools. There are also plenty of private and religious schools in the area worth looking into.
