My husband, kids and I are preparing to move to the Owensboro area. Before we begin to purchase a home, I would like to know about the schools. I have a child that is middle school age, and one in first grade. What do you all consider to be the best elementary schools in the area, and which middle school? Also, for future use, which high school.
This is a serious post. Please don't feel the need to bash any school.
Thanks!
Deer Park Elementary School, I went there and loved it, then I went to college view and it was great as well, and now I'm at Daviess County High and I like it as well, currently I'm a sophomore there. All 3 of these schools are within 2 miles of each other on the same road.

How do you know OHS has 2 classes of them? How many are mainstreamed?
If you never see them in the county high schools, does it imply they're hidden, or they've been expelled, or what?
I know they have two classes of the severe ones because I took a peer tutoring class a couple of years ago there. Also, I have had family and friends that went to daviess county and Apollo and they never seen them. Someone said that they do have kids with bad disabilities there so yeah I am implying theyre hidden because nobody has ever seen them.

I lived on Veach road which is half a mile away from them( I now live about 15 miles away) but in masonville I hear they are building a new subdivision there and I think it would be a great place to live

Whatever you do don't send your kids to city schools. I switched mine from city to county and they are so much more happy. The teachers are more involved and explain things more and the kids are far more well behaved. Also the curriculum is better. Catholic schools are top notch if you can afford them but their curriculum is a little harder than even the county schools but you get a great education.

how much is tuition on the catholic schools nowdays? When i checked in 2005, it would cost 90k to get both boys though until graduation, beginning 1st grade.
