I'd say it's pretty safe - only 3 murders there all of last year. I think it's a nice litte city. Hopefully someone with info on schools will chime in with an opinion or two

I live in Concord (pop. about 67,000), and my wife teaches in one of the middle schools here. The system's website is cabarrus.k12.nc.us. It's an extremely safe area. We love living here and the schools are some of the best in NC. Some of the better elementary schools in town are Pitts, Weddington Hills, and Cox Mill. The town of Harrisburg (pop. about 6,000) would also be worth a look. GREAT little town that boarders Concord. Also has an awesome elem. (Harrisburg Elem.). Concord/Harrisburg are very family-friendly area, good churches, convenient to I-85 and I-485, 20-25 minutes to uptown Charlotte at non-rush hours, lots of shopping/restaurant options, within minutes of an awesome 850-acre nature preserve, housing in all price ranges, ect. PM me if you want any more info. Good luck and welcome!!!

Default I live in Concord

I agree with friendnc,

I live in Concord and my son attends Pitts School Road Elem. The school is only in its second year and I have nothing but great things to say. My son has attended schools in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties so I have experience in both systems.

We love it here...I must echo what friendnc says. Super family friendly, quiet, and an all around great place to raise a family.

Feel free to ask any other questions, or PM me. I'll be glad to answer any you have.

Have a great week!
Nicole

Default Cabarrus County Schools

I love the Cabarrus County school system. I attended middle and high school in Cabarrus myself, and at the moment have children at Bethel Elementary, CC Griffin Middle School, and Central Cabarrus High School. Alot of the high schools and middle schools are at the moment overcrowded, but there is a new high school opening this fall to aleviate crowding, and another one in the works for the northwestern part of the county in the next few years, I believe. There are also plans for several elementary schools in the works. I have lived in Concord for 26 years. It is a safe area, on the whole, but it is experiencing a growth explosion with alot of new development. (Hence the overcrowding of schools.) Hope this helps some.

I respond to your other thread.

I recently move to Concord last year.
Weather is 10 times better than cold siberia...oops...I mean New York and Pa.

Concord is small old town feeling. Harrisburg is more upscale town feeling.

Did you make your trip yet? If not, what price range are you looking to stay within? I currently live in Union County, but my wife and I are looking at moving into the Huntersville or Concord/Harrisburg areas for commuting purposes, so we've seen a bunch of new developments in those areas.
