What kind of reputation do each of the districts have? What are the issues that any of the districts have (for example, coming from wake county, re-assigning children is a HUGE issue!) What advantages might they have over one another...etc

I have heard conflicting statements about who has the better schools etc.

As a parent and educator, I highly encourage you to look into Davidson County Schools. I know they are much higher quality than Guilford County. I have not had experience working in Winston though, so I do not know about their schools. I think you'll find good elementary schools everywhere; however, there is a huge difference in the standards followed at the middle school and high school level. Guilford County's curriculum is watered down in comparison to Davidson County, and there is not as much homework and extension activities done in Guilford. It's not because the teachers don't care, it is because there is a greater emphasis on testing and continual benchmarks, the population of students get less academic support in the home, and many of the students have language barriers. All of these factors combined prevent teachers from having the ability to have as much rigor in the classrooms. I have been very pleased overall with Davidson County. I feel my children are being prepared for college.
