I live in Kernersville, and it's about fifteen minutes to downtown Winston-Salem or twenty to Greensboro during rush hour. I moved here from out of state, and I really like it. It's a good place to raise a family, there seem to be ample jobs, and the cost of living is quite low compared to most larger metropolitan areas.
I would describe the winter here as pretty mild. We get all of about five inches of snow here on average for the entire year. It's only cold here for about two months, and even then the temperature usually stays above freezing during the day. You definitely don't need a large down winter coat. If you want to totally avoid snow completely, you really need to go about two or three hours south of here, but compared to Michigan and the Northeast the winters are 100 times better.

Default Kernersville

I would recommend Kernerville Elementary or Piney Grove Elementary. I would say East Forsyth High School is average with other better possiblities either in public or private high schools in the area.

Lived in or around K'ville since 1970. It has changed alot since I first moved there as a kid. Which is good because there is more for kids to do now than when I first moved there. Soccer fields of the first order now are available along with parks with skate areas and the YMCA.

Numerous new develoments, but I would recommend some of the older developments. Across from the fourth of july park is a established development with houses ranging from 150+.

Welcome to North Carolina and K'ville in particular. If you need any other information, just drop a line.

Another "hot place" for families seems to be Clemmons. I haven't really heard negative things about the schools, but the kids I am meeting are Pre-K.

Here is the NC school Report Card link:

In my opinion, it seems like you really can't go wrong moving to Kernersville. There is a lot nearby if it isn't in town.....
I have 2 young children and love the Clemmons area and I'm a transplant, I love the school system in this area... I have heard good things about Kernersville too, living wise anyway, I don't know much on the school system there though.
