Which disctrict in Lyon for family?

Hi Everyone!
We would really appreciate your advice on this. Our family is relocating to Lyon this summer and we are trying to figure out which areas we would like to live in. We want an urban environment, meaning an apartment (preferably 3 bedrooms) with shops and bakeries and public transport nearby, rather than suburban house with garden. We have two daughters Protected content 9 years old), so a decent college (middle school) and elementary school in walking distance is also important. We're planning on sending them to regular French public schools, so we don't need to be near the International School. We don't necessarily need much in the way of parking either, as we'll try to be car-less as much as possible.
We are relocating from the US but are looking to live a regular "French" lifestyle, if you know what I mean...; )
Your tips and suggestions are very much appreciated!

Thank you for your advice!
