I am an agent in St. Cloud. Depending on exactly where you choose your 15 year old will go to either St. Cloud or Harmony High School. Both are fine schools. (I taught at Harmony for one year before I went full time in real estate.)
Glad to hear that St. Cloud has caught your eye on the internet, but as we all know the internet never does justice to any place. You need to come down and take a look in person. St. Cloud is still small town America and is a charming place. It really is a hidden gem.
The house you found is unusual in that it is relatively new (by St. Cloud standards) and yet is still north of 13th St (Highway 192). If you want the real St. Cloud experience then you want to be north of 13th and as close to the lake as you can afford. The bank has taken this house off the market due to title issues, but they already had a lot of offers.
