I have 2 kids in Clover Middle School and I think it's great. I can't compare to Oakridge - but I do know that they just finished building that school about 2 years ago so everything is brand new at that school. My kids wanted me to transfer them to Oakridge because they have more 'perks' since it's brand new...like a lounge area.

If I am not mistaken, I don't think you can choose which school you go to...it all depends on where you live. Before Oakridge was built, all kids went to Clover Middle - but once Oakridge open, they split the address zones and therefore some kids whose address were zoned for Oakridge went there.

Overall, I like Clover Middle - the teachers are great..they encourage the kids to learn and even offer tutoring. I keep in contact with all teachers through email which makes it easy for me to keep up with what is going on. They have good sports program. I also like that they coordinate special events in the evening so that gives working parents flexibility.

They're both in the Clover school system. You can't go wrong with either. As Samana said, CMS used to house all middle school students as CJHS, but Lake Wylie now houses OMS and one day will have a high school. Both schools have competent staff members, great facilities (CMS is older, but it's not that old...built in the late 80s, early 90s maybe?). Best of luck to you in your search and your move!

Thank you both so much for the great feedback! Do either of you (or else out there)have children that play youth soccer. My boys have been involved in soccer since they were little, and I would love to learn about competitive soccer programs in the area.
P.S. to Samama, we haven't yet purchased a home, and schools drive my search above everything else!

Good luck with your search!

One of my girls is on the Clover Middle School soccer team. They compete with other schools in the area - including Oakridge. It's fun and all the kids do a great job.

I did receive a postcard in the mail a few days ago about soccer tryouts in Steele Creek:

Soccer season is over at the school now...I guess since there's only about 4 weeks left of school - but my daughter wants to play more soccer so I might look into this. There's also a Recreation Center in Clover and they have all kinds of sports, etc. Here's their website:

Steele Creek is the area around Hwy 49 and 160 in Charlotte. There's a pretty big shopping center in that area that has a Super Target, Old Navy, Marshall's, Home Depot, McDonalds..etc. I believe the soccer field is just a few miles up from this shopping plaza...

No kids here, so Samana's great advice will have to be your driving point I'm just a product of the system and still check in as family lives in the area. Good luck!
