it's important to mention that the school will be brand new and that a lot of teachers employed at Wesley Chapel Elem. (currently zoned to villages of wesley chapel) will be working at the new school. We purchased in St. John's Forest, and though we were initially told Wesley Chapel Elem will be our school, it's been changed to the new school Rocky River. As parents we need to work hard to ensure that we keep our kids focused but I don't think this school will be a problem. Villages of WC looks very nice; St. Johns is also great option .

Default Union County School Assignment Finder

Since this area is growing so rapidly, it IS confusing to know in which county or town you are located from just a postal address. If you are relocating to Union County, NC, I would recommend this website to help you figure out school assignments. You are able to type in an address and locate THAT YEAR'S school assignment. Please note that due to the rapid growth, new schools are opening also at a rapid pace. Living at the same address for the last 13 years (with three children), our family has been redistricted into four NEW schools and we know we have two more NEW schools to go before we graduate our last child. That being said, in most cases, a large population of the school we were in all moved WITH us to the new school, so it wasn't so difficult and actually a little exciting. It's just that this area was largely rural and now it is building out at a rapid rate, so the neighborhoods are just condensing.

Default Historic Downtown Monroe

If you like character and historic buildings, Monroe is a good place to live. You can buy a historic home (late 1800's to early 1900's) for under 200k. Monroe is an up-and-coming area...with lots of character. (Shame on the person who said to stay away from downtown Monroe!) Many commute to charlotte (20 - 40 mins, depending where you're going)... The historic area is full of professionals...teachers, doctors, nurses, professors, lawyers... The schools are improving in the city...the county schools are exceptional...and there is a charter school in the city that is exceptional as well. A dr. friend of mine (and neighbor) lives in downtown monroe and is affiliated with Carolinas Medical Center - Union (about a three minute commute from downtown Monroe)...they just won an award for one of the best Employers in North Carolina in which to work for...Check out the website re: Monroe... and best of luck....
