Hi~ My husband has job opportunity in GSO and I have been dilligently reading about schools and neighborhoods. I have not read much about private schools in GSO and am curious about that option. I have only heard about Greensboro Day School, all good things. Does anyone else have experience with the private schools, good or bad? We would most likely be using public schools, but I don't want to rule out private. We have elementary age kids. Will be visiting the area in a few weeks and want to take some tours. Also, we are looking at Summerfield, Colfax, NW area of Greensboro, what are best Elem schools for these areas?

ANY help is greatly appreciated!

You have a number of excellent options with private schools in the area. Greensboro day is considered top notch, but also the highest for tuition. Other excellent choices would include Canterbury School, St. Pious X School (Catholic, but open to all, and a bargain), Caldwell Academy and Guilford day School.

My bias is against Greensboro's public schools. I worked in them before and know teachers still there, so I personally wouldn't have my kids in the school system there. I live in Lexington, and I enjoy the Davidson County Schools here.

Public is fine for elementary age, but if we lived in Greensboro, I would have my kids in private school for middle and high school. The public schools are not that great once the kids are older. Private school would help keep kids exposed less to the crime, violence, bullying, drugs, sex, and gang issues that afflict many of Greensboros public schools (like public school in most large cities). Things seem to have gotten worse over the years due to increasing unemployment and crime. The scores and college readiness that private schools offer is also something to consider.
