We are considering a move to Meck County very soon. We are actually coming to town on Wednesday for the final interview process. Pretty sure we have the job. We are wondering where to live. We have 7 children..newborn to college age (which she will remain in PA). We homeschool most of the kids, but we do want options should we desire outside education for any of them. We would need great resources for kids with Autism as well. If anyone can please give us an idea of where to look. This came about pretty quick so we haven't had a lot of opportunity to check into things. We are just looking for a frank, honest approach to relocation. We understand there are good and bad about everywhere you live.

We will be looking for a rental, so no need for a house purchase just yet. We have to sell our home here in PA first. Thanks so much!

You will likely have limited options for this school year since you are moving so close to the start of the school year. You need to start at the Family Application Center 980.343.6759

On The Web

Here is what you need to register your kids in CMS
http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/studentAssignment06-07/information/PDF/NewStudentEnrollment.pdf (broken link)

The schools in Charlotte are like any other city , so expect some of everything. My kids were in homeschool (abeka) before attending CMS and they were ahead of many of the other children, so you can expect the same. The better schools are located in the most expensive areas in general though there are some exceptions. I would avoid homes in zip code 28216 if you plan on using public schools.

You will need to be very patient as this process is very frustrating at times. It took us one entire school year and much prayer to get our three kids in a good school.

hope this helps
