Hello All, my husband is searching for jobs and there are good opportunities in triangle area which will suit him. We have two kids in Middle and high school. We are in one of the good school districts in Maryland in Howard County public schools and would like to know how the school system rates in Raleigh area. I read Wake county schools are good.. but there are other magnet and charter schools in NC. We do not have the magnet or charter schools system here in Howard County, MD. How does one get into the magnet school? I would appreciate if you can give us some inputs about schools and general life in triangle area. Thanks in Advance.

Please search forum, there are many posts on this already. There was even one post by someone from Columbia MD couple of years ago, not a lot changed since then. There is a designated relocation thread sticky as well at the very top.

You don't have to send kids to magnet or charter schools, regular schools are perfectly fine. Someone posted a good explanation about schools just recently, again - please use search.

Welcome to NC. I recently moved back to NC after a stint in HoCo. Just one tip; THE LEFT LANE IS FOR FASTER TRAFFIC, haha. In all seriousness, worst drivers ever in MD. Not aggressive, just really bad drivers when it comes to the "rules of the road".

Good luck in your search, this forum is a great resource.

Yes, if there is one topic that is discussed "to death" on this board, it's schools. You can go to the Wake County Public Schools website for firsthand info (presuming you'd be in Wake) or search the forum for the proper keywords (sort by dates, most recent) for lots of previous discussions.
