Hi Cristina,

Wow, I almost feel like that is a loaded question.....you really have to tour the areas because they are all so different. It all comes down to what you enjoy doing.....gardening, children, rec sports, travel, big yards, front porches.....I would encourage you to hook up with a realtor and travel in and around the area. The schools are all a little different but very much incredible and each neighborhood has a different dynamic feel.....seriously, take a walk down the sidewalk and talk to some people - get a feel for the culture. May take a few evenings and eat up some weekend time but you will learn a lot. I would love to help you out - drop me a line if you have additional questions.

All my best,

Hi Stephen,

My husband and I have a 12 and 10 year old........schools are very good, however, you have to remember you get out what you put in......lots of homework required. If you want the grade you have to work hard.....of late there has been a large emphasis on writing. Secondly, there is a good amount of support for gifted and challenged children. We also have a handful of private applications in and around the area. Many of the schools have exceptional music programs and work hand in hand with the University of Wisconsin to offer extra curricular opportunities for children. Biased or not Madison is a wonderful community with many many opportunites. I encourage you to come for a visit. My husband and I assist a lot of couples with relocation needs and many times set up school interviews for our clients....it really helps to see the school in action. We map out a city tour and offer some fun fact about the city......and, yes, we show you the good and bad. Drop me an email if you need more details. Seriously, you will love it here!.......don't forget your boots and warm clothes for winter - we do get that lovely White Suff!

All my best,
