Kids living in TG will be attending "Sun Valley Elem. School" in 08-09. Along w/1/2 of Brandon Oaks, & Shiloh Trace I believe.

SVES is currently being constructed "behind" Shiloh Elementary School.

SVES will start off on a "traditional" schedule but there's talk about chaning to a Year round, but nothings set in stone yet.

If you want more info, goto the union county website and search on schools...

good luck!

Sold a few in there. Bonterra is the majority builder. Local(Union County) family owned builder with several other communities.

Good experience overall from clients to myself on each transaction. The community has done very well in my opinion. A good Saturday visit on a nice day and you will see a lot of people out and about. I believe one of the schools, maybe two, are year round.

I know there are a few members on here that live in the neighborhood so maybe they will chime in as well. Also other agents might offer up opinions.

They have some good deals right now on inventory.

Only one school in that area will be/is year round. Shiloh Elementary School. TG kids will not goto Shiloh.


Elementary School kids in TG will be going to Sun Valley ES
Middle School kids will goto Sun Valley MS
HS kids will goto Sun Valley HS...

All three are traditional schedules...

pretty easy to remember!

I've included a color coded boundary map of the elementary schools for union county for 08-09. If you scroll down, Taylor Glenn is in the pinkish section labeled " ES 'K' "

Also agreed w/Charloteean. Inventory is staggeringly high in many, many subdivisions right now and for some time to come. Great deals can be had.

Hope this helps....

If you have any more questions, e-mail Don Hughes the UC Director. He responded pretty quickly to me each time I had a question....

Hi there. I live in the community and I think it's great! PM me if you'd like. My only complaint is the HOA fees. They are a little pricey. Shiloh elementary is an awesome school and I'm hoping that the new Sun Valley Elementary will be as well. It is a very family oriented community and we just started a neighborhood watch as well. A great place to live!

I moved here from the Marvin area of Union County and love it. The only issue I have is with the whole HOA dues and cable issue, which hopefully will be worked out in time. We just got a dish and it works great. The builder owns the cable company and it is less than bad...and if you live on the newer side you have to pay for basic cable in your HOA dues (but the HOA is actively seeking to get that rectified)

There are kids of all ages....just drive through on a warm Saturday afternoon and you'll see them everywhere. A playgroup meets every week at the clubhouse...most of the kids are toddler age...1-4 yo.

The schools are great...and the new Sun Valley Elementary opens this fall.

I think you will love it here!

Whats wrong with the HOA dues?!?!??! Are there any ridiculous demands that the HOA puts on the homeowners?
