Woodvale Elementary and Broadmoor Elementary are both good schools. I attended Woodvale as a child and wish I still lived in the area to send my daughter there. The neighborhoods that are zoned for these schools are great areas to live as well.

thanks! have you heard anything about milton elementary and middle? i've heard rave reviews about it, but not sure how zoning works in that area. do you have to live in the zone to attend? (i'm guessing yes, but never hurts to ask, right?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">)

I have heard great things about all of those schools. Mine aren't in school yet, but we are zoned for Woodvale. There ARE houses for rent in that area, and run around 1-1600 a mo. just to give you an idea. If you want to know more about Milton, let me know and I can connect you with someone I know.<br><br>
When I was younger I went to Broadmoor!

I've always heard good things about Prairie Elem. and its a school of choice so you may be able to get in without living in the zoned area. As for the 3 year old my dd is at Little Oaks Learning Center (daycare) and she loves it and has learned alot there. You'd have to live in Milton area for kids to attend Milton, etc there is a list of the "schools of choice" though you do have to qualify you're kids to attend there.
