Maybe

The school reassignment plan for 2008-2009 has been released, with the exceptions of a few minor tweaks here and there...I'd say its a done deal.

Therefore, you can be pretty certain where your child will attend school for next year... beyond that... well....

One tactic I've heard about, but can't validate.. is to buy a home in one of the older neighborhoods.. old cary, old north raleigh, etc. These neighborhoods are more established and aren't being flooded with oodles of kids now and over the next 10 years , and may not be as much of a target.. but you never know...

Some of the neighborhoods in North Raleigh that would fall in this category :

Stonehenge - there are multiple sections.. the oldest sections are out of the city limits and have great lots !!
Crosswinds
Greystone
Brookhaven (older sections and new sections)

You'll find homes built by custom builders before the production builders took over, nice wooded lots, updates, etc.

These neighborhoods don't have the big amenities, but a lot of those people belong to Seven Oaks Recreational Center - 3 pools, tennis courts, etc... it is "the place to be" in the summer for people living in that area.

Note about North Hills - more turnover and younger families moving in as the origional owners from the early 60's are dying off, nursing homes, etc.

Most of these homes were built in the early to mid 80's.. there has been some turnover during the years, but for the most part these are established neighborhoods... there ARE kids.. but not oodles...
