As far as schools go, do they do mandatory bussing in the Dayton area? I thought I read that it's done in Dayton public schools, but haven't found anything on whether they do it in the burbs.
They are getting back to the neighborhood concept in Dayton proper and moving away from busing. They also have specialized high schools (arts, science, etc) but there is no way I would ever allow creek jr to attend Dayton Public. If we had to live within the city limits I would pay for him to go to private schools.
As for the suburbs, it's strictly a neighborhood thing. For example in Beavercreek there are 5 elems, 2 middle, and 1 high school. He attends the elem closet to our house and it will be the same when he moves on to middle school.
