of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community

attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W Leland Rd / Golf Club Rd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing.
