Des Plaines is a Dump

Lived in Des Plaines for 10 years and was the biggest mistake. We moved for the lower cost of living and at the time good school rankings for our kids. Luckily we just moved out as our kids move into junior high. The public school rankings have dropped precipitously since we moved here and the teacher turnover rate is extremely high. Des Plaines is basically a pass through town to expressways, airport, and surroundings better towns. A lot of train lines and busy intersections. Low income apartments and poor school rankings part due to the demographics of the town which keep the real estate prices depressed. The downtown area is far below the offerings to that of Arlington Heights, mount prospect, park ridge. If you’re looking to move northwest suburban Chicago pick any of the towns except Des Plaines.
