Hi! We are looking at possible moving to Windsor NC. We have young school aged children and everythign I have read says the schools are awful! Are they really? Is this area good to raise a family. We want land with hunting and fishing so that part doesn't bother me. I am just really concerned about the school and social life that is available to my children. Thank you for your advice!!

How did you pick Windsor? Have you ever been there? Have you visited the schools and talked to the principle and teachers?

Its a tiny, isolated town in a poor, economically distressed county. Is that the type of place you're looking for?

Windsor is a nice town. It unfortunately is in a very poor county that is agricultural based. Lots of land around though, which seems what you were looking for.

The public schools are considered bad...the more affluent send their kids to Lawrence Academy in Merry Hill, which hurts the public schools even more by taking some of the smarter kids out of the publics. Lawrence also draws from Edenton and Plymouth.

Its a very rural area, so social life is with those from the area...and most are long time generations...so fitting in may be a little hard. But the population is very friendly and welcoming.
