So, my girlfriend and I are prospective first-time home-buyers, and some of the properties we're looking at are in the city. One in particular that has caught our attention is a charming fixer-upper in Clifton Heights. It has enough bedrooms that we could have a couple kids and still live comfortably in the house. Its price-point is very appealing. We have romantic, perhaps naive visions of rehabbing it room-by-room over a period of years, and living in it long-term.
The issue, of course, is what we'd do about kids' schools.
This thread's pretty old (even though it has recent activity), but I was wondering what people's opinions are right now about the state of the city's school system in 2016. Are there enough charters and magnets that city parents don't need to worry about options when it comes to making sure their kids receive an affordable high-quality education? Do you pretty much have to go the private route? What's going on these days?
