Continue to achieve the State’s Highest Rating every year since the “Report Card” program began 9 years ago. Congratulations to Centerville and Oakwood Schools!

Now, the other thing that typically gets asked about, is the tax rates for schools in our area. The latest report shows the following:

Tax Millage Collected for Schools: (Ranked Highest to Least Expensive)

Oakwood at 53.90

Trotwood at 43.92

West Carrollton at 43.18

Huber Heights at 42.35

New Lebanon at 40.37

Kettering, Valley View at 40.11

Mad River at 39.40

Sugarcreek at 38.85

Springboro at 38.00

Northmont at 37.61

Vandalia at 36.44

Beavercreek at 35.07

Dayton at 34.30

Brookville at 33.48

Jefferson Township at 32.12

Miamisburg at 30.79

Note: Centerville states that the Operating Tax Rate in 2008 is LESS Than it was in 1976! They credit this to the successful operating levies being treated seperate to fund specific capital and school building infrastructure.

Investing in the school system is always something voters weigh before going to the polls – having the correct information about what the actual dollar goes for is the best way to know which way to vote. Call your school district for more information. (And vote responsibly!)


Voted among Top 100 Best Places to Live – Money Magazine pick #84 and our Ohio Senate honors the vote! A growing population of about 40,000 and industry, shopping / retail, restaurants and more all to keep residents active and happy.

As noted on the City website…

Beavercreek is characterized by a spacious, rolling, wooded environment providing a very attractive setting for the many fine residential neighborhoods. Beavercreek is considered to be among the most attractive, dynamic and desirable locations in the Dayton area with an outstanding quality of life. Consequently, it has also been one of the fastest growing suburbs with housing ranging from exclusive, custom-built homes to charming older neighborhoods. Beavercreek still contains a considerable amount of open, undeveloped property with neighboring unincorporated areas subject to future annexation.

This is a community that I recommend for those seeking an easy commute to anywhere yet offering a stable and growing environment. The schools are rated Excellent with sports programs that compete statewide. Military families enjoy Beavercreek’s advantages and easy drive to WPAFB.



Oakwood will be celebrating their Centennial this year! Congratulations for making the 1908-2008 transition and for offering residents a charming and distinctive community to call home. Orville Wright’s among the well known who once called Oakwood home (the house on the corner of Harmon and Park) still standing. John Patterson (founder of NCR) also lived in Oakwood. Today, many community leaders and professionals reside in Oakwood. Best known for the TUDOR style home, Oakwood has a range of home designs and prices to meet the taste of residents (from affordable elegance to stately grandeur.)



Named after Charles Kettering, philanthropist and inventor of the auto self-start, Kettering is located just 5 miles South of Downtown Dayton and is a bustling city for businesses and families. The school system is in the top rankings consistently and is the second largest school district of Montgomery County.

Many activities are available, along with shopping and dining out. The Fraze Pavilion is a great concert experience and fun way to “unwind.” Kettering Medical Center is located here, with the Kettering Health Network among the area leading employers.
