We will be moving to NC so my husband can work at Ft. Bragg. We have 2 high school girls and I would like to get opinions on Moore County schools versus Cumberland county schools. We move a lot and have learned that just because a school looks stronger statistically on paper does not necessarily make it a better school! I also want to take into consideration family life, community and commute for my husband. But first and foremost will be to make sure they are in a good quality school.

The Cape Fear School District is really good. The top 3 elementary schools in the county are in this district, and the middle school & high school are really good too (have 1 at each of the middle school & high school). You could live around Eastover or Stedman, or even more further out in the rural area if you wanted. You're about 15 minutes from Fayetteville, about a 30-40 minute drive to Ft. Bragg via I-295 to Ramsey St.

Living in Moore County would be safer than living in Cumberland County, especially for your 2 high school girls. Depending on where in Moore County you move to you can be anywhere from a 15-45 minute drive to Ft. Bragg. So. Pines or Pinehurst are probably the better options. I would advise against anywhere in Fayetteville really.

Not all of Cumberland County is so bad...especially "east of the river."

Cumberland County =/= Fayetteville, though Fayetteville = Cumberland County. I second Cape Fear High, which though it has a Fayetteville address is outside the city limits. The area is Cape Fear or, technically, Vander.

I'm in Cumberland County and I'm a 30 minute drive to Fayetteville. You can't get much more rural than where I live. All of Cumberland County is not equal to Fayetteville.

Moore. Have lived in both and Moore is better but my family disliked all that area of N.C. Raeford is the only county that I ran into where fewer people complained about their county. People seemed nicer. A friend from S.C. said, "Fayetteville, it's where we send our mentally ill patients!"

Now I'm partial to Gray's Creek in Cumberland county. We are east of I-95. That is where I chose to raise my family.
