I would echo enlightenme's advice. Pretty much anything in zip code 27104 has good schools. There are also good private schools within the city.

Us too! Thanks so much for posting this. Really would love info on WS area and if it is family-friendly. Looking for a small town USA feel with great schools and excellent healthcare. Beginning to wonder if this dream place exists. HA!

Generally, the more desirable Forysth Co. schools are Reagan, West Forsyth, Mt. Tabor, and Reynolds. There are many other schools with very good programs and great kids, but I think most would include these four schools among the best overall. There are dozens, maybe hundreds of great neighborhoods that feed these schools, so it's hard to narrow that down without knowing what your needs are, price range, etc.

About the "rednecky conservative" question, the city is very diverse with all sorts of political leanings. With the medical center and major colleges here (and other factors), we have lots of different people moving in and out all the time, literally from all over the world. We have a large artsy crowd, who will usually be rather liberal in their outlook. We have a large white collar base, which may tend to be more conservative (at least in economic issues), with lots of blue-collars in the mix as well. We have very religious people (with about all major religions represented), and those who are not so religious.

I think the city is very progressive politically, but as you move out into the surrounding counties things become very conservative pretty quickly. It's always somewhat contradictory to me to live in such a progressive area, yet we end up being represented by quacks like Virginia Foxx. It's largely because the district includes rural counties that are much more conservative.

Anyway, I don't intend for this to become a "bash Foxx" or a liberal vs. conservative discussion--everyone has the right to believe what they want. I'm merely trying to help paint a picture of the political landscape in this area.

I do think Winston and surrounding area is a great place to live. Family-friendly, great schools, great health care, lots to do, etc.
