My family may be moving to Greensboro, NC this summer. Would like to get any information i.e. middle schools, high schools. Is there any charter schools?

How is the weather especially in the winter?

Any information you could give me would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I was looking into Charter schools myself recently. I found a site that seems to list several with Parental/student ratings which I found helpful. You might like it:

Default Schools

There are a few charter elementary schools. There are also some religious and non-religious private schools.

The public schools in Greensboro are hit-or-miss based on where you live ... some are good, many are average, some are bad. You can check ncreportcard dot org for a report about each public school in the state. Highlight the school system, then click the school on the next page, and then click "School report card snapshot" for a detailed report.

Winter weather -- it depends where you are moving from. As a native Floridian, I thought it was cold when I first moved here, but it's not really a big deal. Others from the northeast or midwest would call it very mild during the winter.

On average there are a few snowfalls during the winter. Every few years there will be a heavy snowfall, but most of the snow events are less than 5 inches. The most problematic event during the winter are ice storms -- you can count on 1-2 per year, although I don't believe we had one last winter.

You can check the official stats, but the average high during the middle of winter is around 40-45 and the average low is around 30. It doesn't get cold until December, and it starts to warm back up around the end of March.

I agree with JAS.

Average January
High -47.2F
Low - 28.2F

Average July
High - 87.6F
Low - 68.1F

Expect 3.8" of snow during an average season.

Greensboro (guilford county)weather is not bad. NC is only notorious for the pollen allargies. In the winter they get snow couple of times a year (1-2 inches). Summer usually is 85-92 F. The city is growing very fast. Schools are currently going thru a major change for the same reason. There are a couple of Charter schools. Greensboro Academy (K-8) and Imani Inst are 2 of them. There a few magnet schools too. Check this out:

We currently live in MA and I really hate the winter! I guess I could live with a little bit of snow

Another few questions: what areas to avoid in looking for houses; what is there to do to keep my 12, 13 14 year olds occupied?; we have a camper - any good campgrounds around the area?


I am a family childcare provider here, and can't find any info regarding this in Greensboro. Is there a need for it? What is the going rate?

Thanks so much.

Oakridge and Summerfield in North Greensboro, Lake Jeanette in GSO and Jamestown to the south are good places to live in. Kernersville to the West (10 miles) is going thru the roof right now with DELL starting its bussiness.
Greensboro Koa Campground is the only one that I know of. Celebration Station and Emerald Point nearby can keep the kids happy. Very soon a man made rafting place is opening. real estate is set to take off according to a lot of agents.

Man, I wonder why my link was removed. I know it was 2006, but I remember it was a pretty important, impressive site. What rule violates knowing how well a school does? Doesn't the public have a right to know about the schools and to be able to discuss it?

*perplexed*
