What are the schools like in the Cary, Apex, Raleigh area?
We will probably be relocating from Dallas and the schools here are like prisons or boot camps, and I am hoping schools in this area are better.

Any input is appreciated.

TIA

We live in Apex and so far have been very happy with the schools. We have a mix of traditional and year round calendars. Year round has been great. You are in for 9 weeks then off for 3. Some I know prefer the traditional calendar but since we both work and don't have summers off that's not a concern. Cary and North Raleigh also have good schools. I would come and visit. Check out neighborhoods, even visit the schools. If you've never been here you need to see the area and get a feel for it. See how you like it etc.

Are you referring to the level of security required due to discipline problems. Are you referring to all Dallas city schools, or just the one you are familiar with?

Just the few schools I am familiar with. academically they are great, but they don't see kids as kids...they are inmates or programmable little robots.

if the 6 year old first grader forgets to read a book or bring homework or whatever, they'll be in trouble and not get recess...just one of probably 20 examples
i could bring up.
