All I know is what I see on the news about CMS and what I see isn't good. They are such a mess that the state has had to intervene. Two nights ago they were reporting on the "improvements" they were making. The level of students who were working in their own grade level has risen from 62% to 64%. I'd be taking a long hard look at the schools there if I had kids.

Having 4 kids...when we move, thats our number one consideration. You can get the school scores from their websites and also there is another website out there, not tied to any school, that gives you scores and breakdown of students. Do your research, people. However, after saying that...do you wonder WHY people want to live in North Raleigh and Cary, above other areas??? Vicki

I thought CMS changed the whole bondary thing and limited the 'school choice' to be within the boundaries of areas instead of the whole county?

A lot of the schools that were available before for school choice are now closed to new enrollments if they are at capacity other than for new students where the school is considered the home school.

There's still a whole lot of mess but the new plan stops some of the overcrowding and busing. There's also a lot of info on charlotte.com under education. I'm not there yet so I could be wrong? Anyone been reading the cms site for the boundary and school choice changes?
