I am considering moving to St. Croix and was wondering if there are areas that are safer to live in than others? I am looking for a job as a special education teacher. Are students with disabilities included in the public or private school or do they all go to a special school or the vocational center?
Thanks!

it seems when it comes to safe areas, there is alot to say and all people have their own and differing opinions. some people say condo row is not safe some say christiansted is not safe?? i feel safe most of the time and i live in town, east end is "considered safe" though there have been alot of break ins lately. i guess it just depends on who you talk to. we just dont go to certain places at night unless its jump up or some other function like that. and usually my bf carries.

i would suppose that the type of disability was dependent on where your child could go to school. Mental or physical? Will they need a handicap ramp or a special education teacher?

A friend teaches part time at a private school for learning challenged and troubled kids. Only 30 kids admitted each year.
