My husband may get a job promotion and we are looking at the Mt. Sterling area to live in. I don't know anyone there or anything about the area. Can someone give me the low down on a safe area to live and a good school for my children.Thanks!

Holly Hills is a nice neigbor hood there's even a house for sale at 135 Holly Hills Drive near Winchester road oh and I'll just rank the schools on reputation for safety Mcnabb- Not very good atleast 23 fights a month
Intermediate School- Great it's safe secure and a nice place to go
Mapleton- it's good too nice principal
Etc.
Mt.Sterling Elementary- Not that good a couple teachers got fired last year for Drug use
Camargo- It's decent not much happens there I've been a few times long enough to now that and that's basically it Mt.Sterlings a nice little town with a excellent Law Enforcement and EMS response team the only bad spots in town are Chances and The walking Horse both are Biker bars that are nasty and scummy the Owners have been arrested multiple times for drug use and selling and that's that your welcome

Stay as far away from the public schools in Montgomery County as possible. The superintendent is nothing more than a politician looking out for his own gain. NOTHING he does is for the kids, it is all about helping him advance to one day be state commish of education. He's driven out most of the good teachers with experience and replaced them with obedient recent graduates.

If your husband gets the promotion, send them to private school (there is a K-8 in Winchester) or don't live in Montgomery County.

Topix is not the place to ask any serious questions, ask friends, relatives, or any acquaintances you have in Montgomery County.

I wish that I had never subjected my kids to this place! The school system (teachers) are suppose to be there for your kids and help them in any way to excel. Ummmm.....they are not here! And the "new lead?" Phhhht , he is an over paid joke! The only good thing they have done is hire an outstanding high school principal!

I can't speak for the elementary schools but the high school is a joke. I know because I graduated last year. Let's just say if you don't have pretty clothes, have plenty of money, or kiss their butts the teachers treat you like a creature from outer space. Bullying, fighting and the drugs is also a problem. Can't tell you how many times I have seen a drug exchange. If you want your kids to have any sort of future consider putting them into a private school. Montgomery county schools cares more about their sports than their students.

I would stay away from Mt.Sterling if at all possible. If you don't have money or walk around with your nose in the air then you don't fit in. The streets are riddled with drugs and the school system and education sucks point blank period! If you want better for your kids then Mt.Sterling is not the place to be!

The only thing in Mt Sterling is meth labs. Do not go to this town, the schools are horrible, and the people are white trash.

Dont listen to some of these people. Mt.Sterling Elementary is a great school. My kids go there and I wouldnt have it any different. The homes across from the park are beautiful alittle pricey but a great neighborhood. I hope you enjoy living here. I do!!

Get off the cap lock retard. Stop whining because your kid does not get enough attention at school. Perhaps you should spend some time with your kids at home, instead of shooting pills.

Obviously you have never been to my sterling elementary. I know for a fact that there's never been a teacher fired for drugs!!! Are you crazy??? You are stupid for even suggesting that!!! I think teachers have more common sense than that!!! You're an idiot!!!
