Crime was not bad but the schools were pretty sorry. I took AP Calculus in high school only to find out when I went to college that they covered the same material as Pre-calc in most other states.

It is a beautiful city with much to see if you like bourbon. Lots of neat tours of the distilleries available and even some free tasting sessions!
