Well I do love my city and we do have distinguished schools here. I would recommend you visit and see what you think of the area. For specific information about safety and demographics, I would suggest you look at http://www.crimereports.com or contact the local police department.
Realtors are not supposed to recommend one neighborhood over another, we can lose our license by doing so - this is called relining & steering so I am surprised you would get an answer here. You need to do some research on your own. Find the schools you are interested in and then check out the nieghborhood.
