School Systems

The Columbus city school district is made up of 142 elementary, middle, and high schools.

The city's high schools consistently rank in the top 10 across the nation and boast many famous alumni, including actor Michael Feinstein and Rapper Bizzy Bone. Ohio State Universitys academic programs have been ranked in the top five in the nation in several disciplines, including pharmacy, veterinary, social psychology, and vocational education.

Neighborhoods

In Columbus, neighborhoods often exist within neighborhoods. You could easily separate the city into 100 unique districts this way. Neighborhoods are grouped together into larger city sections separated most commonly by the highways, creating relatively even divisions between north, south, east, and west. Most neighborhoods in Columbus are easily identified by welcome signs that hang on the streets of their traditional boundaries. Official boundaries for neighborhoods in this city are difficult to come by; landmarks are a much better gauge of location than area name. Here are several major areas of Columbus:

Old North Columbus: This area is a quiet neighborhood with a large number of single-family, owner-occupied homes. The area has an academic feel mixing in from the neighboring University areas.

Hilltop: Including the popular neighborhoods of Highlands West and Westgate, some sections of Hilltop are considered very desirable. Housing is mostly single-family homes with one or two bedrooms on average. Several notable people from Hilltop include singer Nancy Wilson, state representative Dan Stewart, and astronaut Don Eisele.

University District: Several culturally diverse and unique neighborhoods exist within this area. Overlapping into Old North Columbus, this is home to quiet neighborhoods, historical centers, and core student areas.

Downtown: This is the center of activity for the city and is divided into several much-smaller districts, including the Discovery District, Riverfront and High Street Corridor. Education is a focal point here; libraries, museums, and culturally rich attractions are the norm. Apartments in high-rises and smaller complexes are popular. Studios downtown can be had for a price, with good timing.

East: Mostly known for its proximity to the airport, this is a suburban area. Not as close to the city as other neighborhoods, this is a good area to step away from the center of things without having to leave the city limits.
