I am a divorced mom of 4 looking to move to North Carolina in January. I am looking for a nice area to raise my children. I work from home so I can live anywhere. I am looking for a good school system. Looking to pay no more than $900 per month in rent. I would love to live outside of the city, but not to far away. I was looking at Winston-Salem or Greensboro. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks

North Carolina State High Schools - NC School Rankings

Odds are that everything else you're looking for...
(well, except for cheap rent) will be found near the best performing high schools.

How is it that you have decided on NC, but don't know what specific part of NC? It's a very diverse state? What is it that specifically has put "NC" on your radar but no one particular area? Usually people pick a city/area based on what they like about it, not an entire state. People could answer your question better if you could define what it is about NC that you are looking for.

I suspect the best schools in the state are in Orange County, in or around the towns of Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Mebane- although Mebane and Hillsborough share the same schools for the most part. Some of Mebane, the southern part, is in Alamance County and has different schools.

Greensboro is a great place to raise your kids and I think you may be able to find a rental to suit your needs. The communties that skirt greensboro are very family friendly.

The Triangle is a better choice (Apex, Cary, N. Raleigh, W. Raleigh, Chapel Hill). Trust me, I know the Triangle and the Triad.

A better choice for what? More traffic congestion? Trust me, I know the Triangle and the Triad too. I do like the Triangle area, but the Triad has just as much to offer.

No, it does not. You are misleading people by saying that.

You've posted in numerous threads and have implied time and time again that Raleigh is answer to where everyone should live... The OP requirements are very broad and there is nothing to indicate she should NOT consider the triad. If anything as single mom of four her money may stretch a little further esp. in terms of housing in the triad compared to the triangle.

I lived in Winston Salem for 5 years and no I personally did not like it but I can recognize it can be a great option for many people. Instead of going around saying "trust me" and acting as if no one else here could possibly know what they are talking about provide information that can actually facilitate a discussion.
