Can anyone offer any information as to the quality of the Public Schools in Greensboro. I have children 2 and 6 years old and am considering relocation from Tallahassee, FL.

This site has lots of comparative info: NC School Report Cards

Just keep in mind that these are rather mechanical measures, and while they give some indication of relative success, they should not be used exclusively in your assessment. Often a kid can get a great education at a lower rated school, and likewise you can have bad teachers at the best rated schools. So use the information as a guide for sure, but when you get down to seriously deciding you should try to visit the school(s) and get information from other parents if possible.

Will you be in the city limits of Greensboro, or in Guilford County or surrounding areas? I'm new to the region myself, but the quality of schools depend on where you're looking.

I think the best thing to do is to visit the schools that you are interested in and meet the teachers and parents of the kids. Parents are often pretty honest when it comes to their childs education. I would also ask to walk around and glance into the classrooms to see how the kids are behaving.
