Macaulay and Birkdale are also good (they both connect to Wynfield) - Skybrook is beautiful minus the power lines. Vermillion is new, go to DavidWeekly.com, they (DW) also have a new nice neighborhood called Christenbury that is nice. Cabbarus schools are better than Meck - so I would not rule out Concord - Have you been to concord mills? Concord is growing like crazy! Davidson is nice but over priced for what you get, JMO.

All of the research I have done shows that the top 4 Meck County high schools (one of them being N Meck) scores are MUCH better than any of the Cabbarus Co. high schools. Also, five of the Meck high schools are in Newsweeks top 200 or 300. None of the Cabarrus schools are even in the top 1200! Concord High School state test scores (along with ACT and SAT) are the worst in all of Cabarrus County and worse than the top 5 Meck Co. Schools.
What am I missing? Why do you (and others on this site) consider Cabarrus to be the better choice? Are their intangibles that I can't find in the stats? I am a high school math teacher...we tend to look strictly at the numbers...so I think I must be missing something

Hi I definite would explore all of huntersville and judge what the communities offer and the amenities to make your life easier are within reasonable distance. Here is another good thread for you to help in your choice

I too looke at the stats before moving to the area, my two sons went to school on the Meck side for all of 2 days, before I busted them out of that prison and enrolled them in a Cabarrus county school... You will have to come here and see for yourself, I am not sure where they get there stats from, but they don't seem to fall into line with reality...

with the new Mallard Creek highschool opening I think the N. Meck schools will finally be given a true chance to shine. I/m sure 2 days was long enough to give the place a chance!

You have no idea, and I am speaking for the Middle school not the High school..
N.C. has way too many issues with there school system, seems they would rather pump the money into sports and not so much into education...Schools in Meck are way over crowded, and the teachers I spoke with seem to have no more than a high school education themselves...He to each his own, but not for my children...
