The "Triad Area" covers a lot of territory. 3br house price ranges from $100,000 to $1,000,000. Lots of good high schools...Northern Guilford, Northwest Guilford, Grimsley, Reagan, West Forsyth, Mt. Tabor.

Where will your jobs be located? How long of a commute do you desire? Whats your budget for a house?

Of the high schools listed, Northern Guilford, Northwest Guilford, and Grimsley are in the Greensboro/Oak Ridge area. (Technically all three are in Greensboro. Northwest is close to Oak Ridge/Summerfield.) Grimsley is the better choice if you're interested in living "in town." The others are more suburban.

The other high schools listed (Reagan, West Forsyth, Mt. Tabor) are in the immediate Winston-Salem metro.

Default Consider Kernersville

You might want to consider Kernersville which is an easy commute to High Point and Greensboro. I believe there are two High Schools that serve K'ville, Glenn and Southeast. I am familiar with Glenn. My daughter went there. I don't know if they have a good marching band though. If they did I probably would have heard about it.

In recent (last week) release NC high school ratings...Northwest was the best non-magnet high school in the county. They have a great band director, and a great group of kids. For running the cross country program is phenomenal. The school's strength in track is in the distance events because of this. The running programs are open to everybody (ie cross country usually has 60+ kids (boys+girls)). A number of runners have gone on to run in college from this program.

highway 68 runs from Oakridge to high point. It's a good place to commute to high point and Greensboro.

Where in upstate? I grew up near Syracuse...

Thank you for your reply - we did decide to rent in Kernersville - very nice town. We won't buy until next summer (and my daughter and I aren't moving until this school year is over).

Thanks Booney56 for the info - Northwest is a top choice so far due to the fact of MB & Track records
Do you know if you have to try out for the drumline?
Our band has been the NY State champions for 34 years and is open to all who want to join. PS if you are from Syracuse I think you can figure out what HS we go to

I'm still relatively new to the Oak Ridge area, but I can tell you we live in a really nice neighborhood and have several houses for sell, currently.

Ha Ha...I'm from the other side of Syracuse....I went to JD.

I don't know about the drum line, but I know they practice a lot in the summer (twice a day I think). So as soon as you come down you should contact the band director. This will be a "nice" introduction to the south for your child...there's a rumor that it's a little warmer than Syracuse.

I don't know if you are interested in XC. But they cannot practice as a team until early August. But the kids are usually broken up into groups which run on their own. I'm guessing you cannot do XC during MB season.

Down here indoor track (they call it that!) in the winter is completely outdoors, except for State championships.
It starts about mid-november. Winter track is pretty casual, with kids either cross training, getting ready for spring, or trying to qualify for States.
