So when we visited Adelaide April 2015 we spent a lot of time in Christies Beach and fell in love with the area, the beach and the cafes. However I have 2 children to consider (13 & 10) and need to consider schooling.
I have read plenty of negative posts re Christies Beach HS and not much in the way that is positive. We did also look at areas such as Hallet Cove, Seafield Heights, Aldinga Beach and Aberfoyle Park.
I am not decided on the whole hills or beach living, I have never lived anywhere under a 90 minute drive from a beach so it would be nice to give it a try. We also like to walk to local parks and to the local shops rather than taking a car and therefore Hallet Cove lost points due to the steepness of some of the hills.
I appreciate that all areas have good and bad parts and that there is crime everywhere.
I guess what I am looking for is any recent or positive feedback on Christies Beach High? I have friends who have children at Hallet Cove R-12 and are very positive about it.
I know we could still have a look around when we do arrive in October but that was what last years trip was about however it has left me confused. I can however say that at no point did I ever feel like I was in an area that I would never consider and was really pleased with everywhere we saw. Is there any areas that should be avoided at all costs?
