Any feedback on Berkeley subdivision - neighbors? safety? home value stability, etc.? How about J.M.Robinson middle school - staff? student body? academics? safety - drug/crime problems? I think the neighborhood and school are both good; but just doublechecking as we are checking out a house there. TIA

It's a lovely subdivision near the corner of Ballantyne Commons and Providence Road. Homes are all brick... and there are a lot of trees in there. I'm not sure if community amenities are important to you, but Berkeley does not have a community pool.

I cannot provide opinions on schools since I am a realtor, but I have a couple of friends who got speeding tickets on Ballantyne Commons right near the school so don't drive fast there...

Best of luck to you

Berkeley is a very nice s/d - we have friends there who really love it. JM Robinson is a great school. If I was in southern Meck Cty, that's the middle school that I would definitely want my kids to attend.

No connection between the above high school and middle school. Just a coincidence they have the same name. Jay Robinson was a state superintendent and, thus, has buildings named after him.

Jay M. Robinson middle is part of CMS and feeds to Providence High School. Jay M. Robinson h.s. is part of Cabarrus County schools.

JM Robinson is overall a very nice school. It's definitely an extremely affluent school, and from other teachers/staff I've talked to who worked there in the past, that can pose problems occasionally (the general snobbery, stuck-up-ness, and overly-involved parents). So that may be something you want to consider. But overall, a good choice.
