Did you pick the town you live in based on the school system?

Or did you pick it for some other reason like family, affordability, or job?

  • We haven't moved all the way yet, but DH is in Nashville for that reason! He is looking for a place for us because there is an Arabic school there for DD!

  • Several school districts serve our city, but we picked the area of the city we live in based mainly on the school district that serves that area and affordability.

  • I have never moved more than 20 mins from where I grew up. When my LO is old enough for school it won't matter b/c we will be homeschooling since the district we currently live in is awful.

  • We bought our house because we fell in love with it and especially the land it's on. There was the added bonus of one of the best districts in the state. When it came time to choose a school for speech delayed DS1 we ended up going private because we felt that the "great schools" would not have been enough for him. He needed small class sizes and lots of attention.
