Just general advice - You may want to consider a trip to just get acquainted with the area. You have options for the children - I don't know if private schools are an option or not, and there are some Catholic schools in Greensboro as well. Maybe rent for a while if you make the move to see if you're going to like the area & give yourself a chance to learn the area / visit the schools.

jacqui,

Like any town, there are good and bad areas for crime, schools and amenities. I have lived in the northwest side of Greensboro for twenty years and love the area. I raised two children here in the public school system and have no complaints.

Do you have a budget for your new home? That will partially determine where you may want to live. There is a lot of great and useful information here on city data.

here are a couple of links that also have good information.

GCS Online
GreatSchools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community
City of Greensboro, NC - Official Web Site
Home Page : News-Record.com : Greensboro & the Triad's most trusted source for local news and analysis
Crime Maps (http://www.greensboro-nc.gov/departments/Police/Statistics/crimemaps.htm - broken link)

I hope these help.
