I went to NC School Report Card and I see that Apex and Cary do well. I didn't find any other area that does well. What about areas where there are more land. Such as .5 acres and above? Is that county I guess?

I'm thinking the perfect area for you would be New Hill. It is a fairly rural area outside of Apex just barely within Wake County. As of right now, it has escaped the redistricting that many apex students have to Panther creek and still goes to Apex, one of if not the best in Wake County. You could definitely get some decent acerage in New Hill and still be close enough to Apex for shopping/dining etc. And again, for now, go to Apex High School (probably Apex or Salem middle schools)

If you look at NE Raleigh, the lowest score is at East Wake, which has a score of 68.5. Cary HS has a score of 88.7 and Apex has a score of 91.0. So...based on schools...you would want to live in North Raleigh or Cary. Johnston County HS...Clayton 88.1, North Johnston HS 89.4 and West Johnston 87.7. Vicki
ncreportcards is where I went

Yeah, it isn't a very populated area so there aren't a whole lot of homes there. But it meets your criterea of being close enough to Raleigh while still having the "rural feel". I believe that much of the New Hill/Green Level area actually has "Apex" as it's address. If you are using Realtor.com, then you should search under "Apex", and then in the home description, under "area" many of them may say New Hill.

I agree. I have been using the MLS and can narrow things down a bit. I would like a larger lot than I have now (.5 acres). Maybe 1 or 2 acres. I have found a lot, I am sure it is county area though?
