If you are looking at school districts, the dividing street is Lake St. If you are on the south side of it, then you are in the better school districts of elementary and middle school. If you are on the other side it's a toss up as far as high schools go but you will not be in the S.J. Welsh middle school district. Regarding crime rates as long as you stay south of Ryan and Sale but before the I-210 lope you can generally assume that the crime rate will be low. Anywhere else you are going to have to look at it street by street.
