Hey, we just moved in the last 8 months to the greenville, sc area. Now it looks like my hubby's job may relocate us again. We love rural areas with land but within 20-30 minutes to grocery etc. Schools are an issue as we will have a 3rd and 6th grader. Anyone able to recommend an area like this? I am starting now to get an idea of what is there. We really do not want in the city. Thanks so much! Oh, hubby travels between columbia and charlotte areas so I am kind of able to pick.

Thanks!

Fort Mill, Clover or Tega Cay, SC are what you are looking for

I wouldn't consider Fort Mill, Belmont, or Tega Cay as "rural" areas - they are very suburban. The OP was indicating needing to be within 15-20 minutes - that describes the area where I live (rural Cleveland County).

However, you would be hard pressed, IMO, to find very good schools in a truly rural area. Maybe around Clover, SC?

Good suggestion. Also Kings Mountain, north or south of the city, has rural. It's still a quick trip to Shelby or Gastonia. Not a bad trip to Charlotte.

Let me offer another suggestion. While the schools in Cleveland County are OK at best, there is another option. If you wind up in western Cleveland County (Boiling Springs) or in Rutherford County (near Forest City or Rutherfordton) there is an excellent charter school - Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy. The elementary school is in Forest City, and the middle and high schools are located in Henrietta, not too far from Forest City. They have K-12, and is a very good school. My son attends there and it is wonderful.
