My family is coming to your excellent area this weekend as a first step towards making decision to move to NC in 2008. We would like to narrow our selection and are looking for recommendations as to where the young/fun/communities are with lots of families and excellent schools. We have three children 12/9/7 and we are in the 40's. Willing to spend bet $350-450 but really need excellent education. If anyone can direct us to areas you know of that have these qualties, please let us know ASAP.
Thanks. KC

Union County Waxhaw/Marvin/Weddingon....Beautiful with excellent schools, the schools arent IN WAXHAW its just the mailing address and some areas do not have their own post offices so they share.....Waxhaw/Marvin are getting 3 new schools, Rae View Elem, Marvin Ridge Middle, and Marvin Ridge HS...

For a nice home in an upscale area check out South Charlotte, specifically South Park to Ballantyne. Meyers Park High School was listed as #37 in the nation by Newsweek Magazine's "Top 1000 High Schools". Charlotte is also home to many prestigeous private schools. Union County, just south of Charlotte is a beautiful area with good neighborhoods and schools.

Hey there,
We relocated in 1998 -- my kids are also 12, 9 and 6 (boy, boy, girl). South Charlotte and Union County will probably have what you are looking for Check out Thornhill, Cady Lake (grass there is all brown though since it is Bermuda grass, dormant in the wintertime), Stone Creek Ranch (to build new but lot sizes can be small), Providence Pointe, Hunter Oaks (I live there ), the Reserve, Chimenys of Marvin (also new construction), Quellin, Somerset, Lawson (new construction), Brookhaven, Estates at Callonwood...there will be a lot of choices for you!

For school reports, try www.ncreportcards.org...Let (broken link) me know if I can help -- feel free to PM me and best of luck to you
