We are moving into the Akron City School district and my son will be entering Kindergarten in the fall. We are a bit worried about the schools. They do have open enrollment, that is *if* you can get a spot in the school you want, but I don't know anything about each individual school there. Does anyone have first hand knowledge they would be willing to share?
We are also willing to look at bordering districts that accept open enrollment, so if you have opinions on any of those schools please let me know.
Private school is probably out of the question in the long-term. Financially we just can't do it. We might be able to swing it just for Kindergarten, so if anyone has any opinions on private schools in the Akron area, please give those as well.
I'm looking for ANY opinions. I need the good, the bad and the ugly. I need to know what schools to stay far, far, far away from and which schools are a hidden gem that get overlooked. Any help would be appreciated. Those state "report cards" can only tell you so much and I don't trust them anyways.
