Hi all,
I will be moving to the Southport area this summer. I have a couple questions for the locals!
1. Where is the best place to raise a family? I have 2 kids ages 7 and 9. We thought about Winding River b/c we have a boat but it I am concerned it is not "kid friendly" enough. I want to be in a place where there are many families.
2. Are there any high school teachers out there? More specifically, special education teachers?

Default We're also looking

and what I've been reading here is discouraging. I have 3 kids under 7. So far I've learned the schools aren't great and the high school is pretty bad. Oh how sad. I see there's a relatively new Montessori that goes to 6th grade. How feasible is a drive to Wilimington for school????

I currently run a small high quality preschool in the lower portion of my home & would plan to do the same in Oak island. How are the public school in the area?
