I am thinking about moving my family to the Imperial area. Can anyone tell me a little about this area? How are the schools? The house I am looking at is off Lemay. Is this a good neighborhood. I'm a trucker's wife and we have 4 wonderful children. We are moving because we are looking for a larger house. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Most of Imperial is a dump, there are some nice parts of it, but most of that area is off of the outer road.

BillyBob, you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground. Imperial is not a dump. Try looking off of Seckman.
please

I have four children and I live off of Seckman. Schools are good for public. Nice homes and nice people. I've lived her for about 10 years or so. I feel safe in all areas around me. Sure you have lower income areas but thats everywhere. People are just trying to make a living and they are part of Imperial to. If you want to move in with Doctors and Lawyers most of those live West.

It's ok as long as you are an uneducated white protestant. If you want to live with people who are educated don't live in Jeff Co.

Clem you are misspeaking. Jefferson County has little to do with what you talking about.

Well, I understand some people can't afford to live in nicer areas so you are probably right.

Have you been to imperial? There are plenty of areas that are nice along with some that are for the lower class people trying to get by. This world is made of all kinds. Maybe instead of trying to put folks down you could volunteer to show people that are "below" you to be like you.

Thanks for all the colorful feedback.I have decided after visiting that area and checking into the school district. Although, I found most of the area to be a decent place for children, I was not impressed by the school district. I will not be moving my children to Imperial. I am actually looking towards moving out of Missouri. Once again, thank you for your feedback.

Just because someone doesn't make a certain amount of money doesnt mean they are lower class.I would rather a have good honest person with no money for a friend than a pompous a$$ with cash.Money doesnt make the person people!

I'd like to know which school you were referring to? Parts of Imperial fall into different districts.

I was raised in Imperial but, I moved out about 16 years ago. When I go by there now, I see a lot more things to do than when I was a kid.

If you're a trucker & looking to have a family. Imperial probably wouldn't be bad because you'd be able to get your truck to almost anywhere along 61-67.

Good luck.

It's a shame that people looking to move to rural Jefferson County have to be concerned about where in Jefferson County, but you do. And there are many parts of it that would be a bad choice. I know, I made one. It has a great deal to do with the county's inability to control what goes on here.

I live in Summerfield Ct and happen to love it here. If anyone is interested, I am a personal trainer and have a nice gym in my basement.
