I have lived in this neighborhood for 21 years. My wife and I have raised three children who have gone to Stevens Forest Elementary, Oakland Mills Middle and Oakland Mills High Schools. We love this community! We lived in a townhouse in Emerson Hill for 11 years and now live is a single family home. We love the diversity and sense of community in this neighborhood.

Thank you for the information. I have just moved to the area from NC and accepted a job in the OR at Johns Hopkins and need a nice place to live. I know the schools are top rated, but some areas do show crime and I do not want to be in a neighborhood that seems to be a good rental and good school, only to find out the crime is bad. I will check the link and Thank you to everyone for the advice.

Columbia is a unique setting of individual communities with their own schools, fitness centers, shopping, parks, walking paths, etc. It's great location offers families many recreational and educational activities in addition to great howard county schools. 21045 is a large area and is serviced by a few schools. Therefore, I cannot give your more info on a particular school unless you can supply a neighborhood or street address. I also suggest you visit the howard county schools website,, to learn which schools service a particular street as well. If I can be of more service or answer any additional questions, please let me know. regards, John
