Perhaps I should have chose a different adjective, The zoning for schools do not remain the same, just b/c you are in a specific location, two recent examples, Students from S Meck being shuffled to Ardrey Kell, and Weddington Schools being shuffled to Marvin Ridge. I can see how the "constantly" could be misleading, I was just trying to impress upon the inquirer that just b/c the schools are the what they are today, does not guarantee that they will be tomorrow, next year, etc....

My neighborhood in southeast Charlotte has had the same school assignment (high school) for over 25 years!

Posts like yours only serve to paint a distorted picture for newcomers needing solid info.

As I said, SOME schools in high growth areas have to have their students reshuffled when new schools open (like kids who were going to S. Meck now being able to go to school closer to home at Ardry Kell - a NEW school.)

The point is, if buyers will buy in established areas with no or little growth around them, their kids will have a 99% chance of NEVER being reassigned. But everyone wants new construction, and new construction means overcrowding in schools and the need for new schools, which means YES some kids will get reassigned. But it is not constant and only happens to a small percentage of students every year.

Well put, lovesMountains. All three of my children will be attending new schools this year -- because of growth, they are brand new schools that are pretty much splitting out some of the population from the ones they attended before. When I spoke to them about it last year, their only concern was if their friends would be there...they tend to move subdivisions together, so once I told them that most of their friends would be there they couldn't care less...It truly is the price of the growth, and I tend not to complain about it but do my best to make sure it works for my family.
