Do your kids a favor and get the hell out of Illinois.

I agree with Troublemaker. If you can, leave the state (I would if I could).

If you are looking at staying in the area, I would move in the LW East district.

You can research on line to find all of the information one would need to make a choice. My children excelled within district 210, were well prepared and got into good colleges. All school rankings and results are public information.

All schools in the district are excellent. As of this moment, I would probably live where my kids would go to West. I believe Central gets the short end of the stick on several issues. Having said that, it all could change in 11 years. While I think West has the advantages in amenities and staff, I think Martino does a better job at the Junior High level. These are just my opinions. I don't think you can go wrong anywhere in the Lincolnway area.

Taylor Glen and Palmer Ranch go to LW West. I have had two kids go there, one just graduated. Great school, small but a lot of school spirit and great teachers!

That whole area is a good area. I do live in this area, mix of expensive and moderately priced homes. The grade schools, Nelson Ridge and Nelson Prairie are also pretty good.

LWC rocks. My wife taught there and currently one child attend there. Great kids, teachers, opportunities, and the nicer areas of new Lenox attends. Another words, lower income side of NL goes to west. Stay east and go to Central where the "better off" live

Thank you very much. I just dont know if it will be the nicer side of town in 10 15 years when my son is old enough....i mean that side will be 25+ years old at that time and LWW area will be all new and nice. just saying.....what is your input on that??

One thing I know for sure is they are attempting to build cheaper homes in areas that aren't duly developed. I would rather be in an area where I know what is already there

this is very true. though werent people thinking that when the area by LWC was being built up....like these cheaper homes being built it will never work out....then your house appreciates cause of the area.. i just dont want to miss out on the next big area....get house cheap and in 20 years it has appreciated becuase of the development around your area and location....does this make sense.

The "better off" kids have just as many, if not more issues than the less fortunate. Access to Mommy and Daddy's endless supply of $$ is not always a good thing. It's all about how parents raise their kids. It's people like you with snotty attitudes that make me sick. Flash your paycheck somewhere else.

Makes sense but I guess I am in the class of those that build nicer, bigger houses and now they are building smaller, cheaper houses all around me

I never said that I gave my kids money, I don't. I only am saying that I don't like that my house is being surrounded by cheaper homes. Sounds like u might live in one of those cheaper homes? It's not my fault that I probably make more in one month than you make all year
