Any other input? Farmville schools did not rate well from what I was finding. Schools are VERY important but so is a few acres of property. That's the tough balance to find!

Most of your "well above average" school districts do tend to fall within 2 hours of a major city.

What is your definition of "major"?

It would be easy - I think - to find something that fits your criteria within an hour of Roanoke - and that would be a great location - I think - for a truck driver with accessibility to I-81.

Thank you so much. We have realized that to meet our criteria some things are going to have to give...a little...and that's ok. An hour away is fine, we just don't want to feel the congestion of an area like DC. And we don't have to be in the top 3 districts, just really good schools. I will look around Roanoke. Thanks!
