I was looking into the Harris, Griffin and Concord middle schools. Do you know anything about those schools?

We have heard great things about N. Carolina. I see that this forum has a lot of activity (which I like). Please tell me what areas we should look into? Our kids are young (7 and 17 months). We are looking for good schools, family friendly communities, lots of recreation, and close proximity to a larger city.

Our price range is 130's-180's. We don't mind transplants (heck most of S. Florida is a mini New York!). So we are open to a variety of communities. As long as the kids can live a good quality life, we are happy.

Thanks so much!

What city/town/area are you shooting for? Here in Charlotte, 600.00 will not get you in a nice neighborhood or school district. Good paying jobs are minimal at best since there are so many qualified applicants that you will be competing with. What type of job might you be looking for?

There are a lot of smaller towns in Eastern Carolina where you can rent a place for $600 or less-BUT-you have to be careful when choosing school districts. I am also a single Mom-I live in Pitt cty, we moved from South Florida, I have one child a 12 yr old boy. We live in a small town-Farmville, just outside of Greenville. Love the small town feel and sidewalks, allowing my son to easily and safely visit friends. The only drawback is the Middle School here. Unlike Florida they dont offer a "school choice" program. I am very disappointed with this school-others may like it-everything is relative-all depends on what you are used to. We have only been here 9 mths-but when my lease is up in August I plan on moving again. Considering Greenville-same county but bigger city & have checked out some of the schools there. i would really prefer to live closer to the coast (miss the beach) but obviously it will be more expensive. But this area is definetly inexpensive-just depends on what your priorities are. Good luck-pm me if you want.

[quote=nctarheel;10692]Charlotte Meck schools have been notorious the past few years for overcrowding, particulary in the suburbs. Charlotte wants to build inner-city schools and those arent near full capacity, so Ive heard. QUOTE]

I taught in Charlotte's inner city schools, Briar Creek to be exact and it is VERY overcrowded. I had 30 title I students in a trailer. I should have not had more then 21 children due to it being a title I school and the fact it was in a trailer. There was no room for computers, books, a reading area...nothing! All I had were desks squished together. Charlotte definitely needs to focus on the schools in the inner cities.

I was wondering what website you meant. I too would like to relocate to this area with my family from Nj. All the towns sound so great...but which one do I choose?

One good way to choose is to come and visit. Take a few days if possible the visit the various areas then hopefully you can have a feel for the possibilities. Oh and doing research online as much as possible really helps.
