Need Help..Relocating to Columbus!

Hi All, I am trying to relocate to Columbus this summer. I am looking for a nice suburban area with excellent public schools. I have three daughters ages 14, 11, and 5; therefore I am in need of excellent schools in Elementary, Middle, and High. I am interested in apartment renting therefore thoughts on nice apartments would also be helpful. Any information given will be greatly appreciated.

Be aware that Trip Advisor may shut down this thread. They do not like relocation/moving threads. That said, best schools? Bexley Public schools (Bexley is a suburb). They spend more per pupil than just about everybody and they do marvelous things (my granddaughter is there). Also, Upper Arlington schools. I have to also tell you these are affluent areas. The whole Columbus area has more appartments per square inch than anywhere I have seen. Once you narrow down the area, you will find a place to rent!

look into Worthington and Hilliard... both have lots of apartments for rent (nice ones) and great public school systems and are a little more affordable than bexley and upper arlington.

If you can afford it, Upper Arlington schools are excellent. However, it is an old, established, conservative community.
