Hi everyone...I've been reading and lurking on this forum for a month or so- and can't believe how helpful it has been! We've just received confirmation that we are indeed moving to NC- and we're thrilled!! I lived there when I was very little, and can't wait to come back as an adult with my own family(hubby, 7 and 10yr olds).
My question is about schools in Winston and/or Greensboro. We are coming out in a few weeks to scout out areas where we want to live- but would love to know where to start. School is #1 priority...because there seem to be fantastic people everywhere But, we are going to buy a house, so I want to try to pick the right school right away (no pressure or anything!). The middle school in gbo that looks good on paper is Kernodle---?? But, I know paper can be deceiving...Winston is still a mystery to me.

Any suggestions- schools, neighborhoods, zip codes to start searches in?

We're arty-types, so we'd like to stay away from the too 'plastic-fantastic'

THANKS!!!

Default Ps

As for schools (public), NC has a big problem here in most counties. Well-off parents tend to send their children to private schools. This is not meant to condemn all NC schools--my wife works in the school system. The problem is each community has good to excellent schools, all the way down to schools that are more like correctional facilities. It just depends upon where you live and the school district you're in.
This is why I'm worried??!!

The best schools in Greensboro are in the northwest. Zip codes 27455, 27410, 27408. This isn't to say that all other Greensboro schools are terrible, but schools in those zip codes do have the best reputations, as well as good scores for education and safety.

The Guilford County Schools website has grades and results for each school. You should check it out.


I wish you all the best.

I don't know about this area specifically...but really...who ever posted that was full of...well...hey weren't telling the full story.

Your best bet....do some online research and narrow down it down to a few areas where you like the housing options....the GO VISIT the schools in those areas.

Only you are going to know what will be best for your family....and no, in many areas well-off parents do not send their children to private school even if they could afford it, unless they it is for religous reasons. There are some GREAT schools down here....just do your research and ignore the fear mongers.

Default Forsyth Co. Winston Area

Hello,
Just checking in for Forsyth Co. Schools. I moved my family out of Northern Va. almost 10 years ago. My daughter started First grade in Meadowlard the year it opened and I became involved assisting at the school with computer systems. There are a lot of good teachers, school programs and opportunities for both students and parents. If you would like detailed information for schools in the area there are good websites. For Meadowlark Elem and Middle, Regan HS, Lewisville, NC (10 min from Winston) ... even our neighborhood here in Lewisville; Saddlebrook http://saddlebrook.us/ . Private schools are also an option. Forsyth Country Day, located in Lewisville is outstanding and also has a website.
Regards, Bryan
