We know that finding the right neighborhood often means finding the best school district for your children. To help you make an informed decision, we have included links to a few of the school districts in our area for a listing of the public schools. We also note a few of the non-public schooling options available in our area. Additionally, North Carolina publishes an annual School Report Card which rates all public elementary, middle and high schools on a number of different criteria and tracks student test performance over time. While not entirely scientific, the Report Card does offer a high level snapshot of the school. For your convenience, we have provided a link to the report card web site for each of the school districts in our area.
