As far as I know they both have the same Middle and High school or am I wrong?

I think the portion of West Ballantyne located north of Ballantyne Commons Parkway is zoned to South Meck. The rest of West Ballantyne and all of East Ballantyne is zoned to Ardrey Kell.

If by "West" you mean "Johnston Rd" and by "East" you mean Rea/Providence...then there really isn't much difference. Prices for sq ft, amenities, and acreage should be similar. The Johnston Rd area has added a lot of apartments in the past 5 years, and southern areas in South Carolina are also growing...so that's putting more of a strain on rush hour traffic on Johnston.


Schools are good...just note that Ardrey Kell High is a bit overpopulated at the moment. But I'm not sure you have a lot of options, as all high schools in South Charlotte are fairly crowded. There's talk of a new high school being built in South Charlotte, but it probably wouldn't be completed until after your son is graduated.


Another option depending on your budget is to go a bit further south on Rea Rd into Union County (Somerset/Hunter Oaks) neighborhoods and get zoned into Marvin Ridge middle/high.

Thanks!

I will definitely look into these neighborhoods...
