Don't let your daughter leave her new brightly colored and cute coat in a typical Fayetteville, NC school. You may not see it again.

Where are schools with good kids (kids being raised to be moral, kind and smart by their parents) and has a curriculum that is not so slow, slow, slow???

Coastal NC is no VA, where my daughter and husband is at now, and in a city where the median household income is $200k, but my work is here (for now), so please chime in.

Thank you!!!

If all she got taken in Fayetteville was her coat, she got off pretty easy. Eastern NC isn't known for its educational system, not sure where you may have gotten that impression..

And there is your problem right there. If a school is in that type of neighborhood, then it's going to have advantages that this school in Fayetteville won't. More income=more tax money that could be used for the school system. I'm also willing to bet that the kids in that school in VA is also alot rless rough than the one in Fayetteville.

Until you find another neighborhood with median income $200K or above, you will not find the kind of kids you are looking for in school. That is just the way it is.

I take offense to all of Cumberland County Schools being defined this way. There are plenty of good, moral children in good schools with good teachers in Cumberland County. I've had one child graduate from Cumberland County--her PE bag, with cheap sneakers was stolen in middle school, and my youngest daughter is in high school now. She's never lost anything. Of course, we're "east of the river," in Cumberland County, which has the better schools anyway.
