sounds great! Did you relocate family?? Looking still to confirm it is a great move for a young family. Seems like it but really want to find out all the positives and negatives coming from the North East. We will miss the Cape for sure! And NH, VT, Maine! I want out of here believe me but then think...what are we nuts!?

Default KVegas!!!

I have been in Kville for 8 years now. I moved here from VA and my husband from KY. We absolutely love the area. We were both in jobs that transferred alot so they asked that we locate in kville. It has been extremely convenient since we both have now worked in Winston Salem, High Point, and Greensboro without every having to sell our house.
There are alot of great outdoor activities for the family in the area. The YMCA in Kernersville is huge, which lots of activities all year long. We have a child that will be sarting elementary school this fall and will be attending Sedge garden. I have friends that work for the school system and others with kids already in Forsyth County Schools and no major complaints.

Default Kernersville Schools

There are 5 Kernersville Elementary Schools: Cash, Piney Grove and Sedge Garden, Kernersville and Union Cross. The district is divided by zones and based on the area you live in, you are given options to choose for your children and bus transportation. Each school also has a theme, which enables you to send your child to a school that will bring out their strengths. Here's a link to their respected websites: Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools - Elementary Schools

There are currently 3 middle schools that these elementary schools feed into and I would rate them in this order:
Southeast, Kernersville and East Middle. East is the newest school but has had a hard time getting up to par. Southeast and Kernersville are "National Schools to Watch" which is a great honor!

Good luck to you!

The schools in Kernersville are OK but the best elementary school in the Triad is Meadowlark Elementary which is classified as "Honor School of Excellence" meaning 90% to 100% of students are at or above grade level. This is the highest distinction a school can get when it comes to students' performance. Meadowlark Elementary is in Winston-Salem, just a few miles from Kernersville. If yu need more info log on to MyCapstoneProperties.com and go to the school tabs on the left side of the page.

Default ethnic breakdown on Kernersville

Perhaps someone familiar with Kernersville first hand can clear up a disparity in information I'm finding on the web. The city-data stats for Kernersville states the breakdown in race as follows:

[LEFT]Races in Kernersville:
  • White Non-Hispanic (81.4%)
  • Black (8.7%)
  • Hispanic (7.4%)
  • Other race (4.3%)
  • Two or more races (1.2%)
  • American Indian (0.6%)
[/LEFT]

However, when I go to the school data for Kernersville on a government website the breakdown for Kernersville Elementary school shows a much higher minority breakdown :Black 22% and Hispanic around 25%.

I would love my children to go to an ethnically diverse school. I'm just curious as to who's figures more closely reflect the true picture of Kernersville. I'm a little concerned at the high number of children recieving the "Free lunch elegibility program" - Around 50% according to the government site (National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Home Page, a part of the U.S. Department of Education)
