We are moving to the Triad area, and I have a question about diversity in the schools. We are looking at schools in the following districts West Forsyth, Walkertown and North Davidson. Is there any issues centered on race? Which school district has the most diversity?

Assuming you're asking about racial/ethnic diversity, here's some info on West Forsyth High School.

I'm sure you can find similar information for the other districts you've asked about via google.

You can go to the DPI (department of instruction) and look at report cards for all districts and schools. If you dig deep enough each school has its ethnic make up listed.

greatschools.org tracks racial and ethnic makeup for schools. Have you tried searching through schools on that site?

Here's the info for you:

Walkertown High: 0.7% American Indian, 0.2% Asian, 23.1% Black, 5% Hispanic, 4.8% Multi-racial, 0% Pacific Islander, 62% White
West Forsyth High: 0.1% American Indian, 4% Asian, 15.2% Black, 3% Hispanic, 3% Multi-racial, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 65.5% White
North Davidson: 1% American Indian, 1% Asian, 6% Black, 3% Hispanic, 1% Multi-racial, 0% Pacific Islander, 89% White

Strictly speaking from the numbers, Walkertown is the most diverse. However, it's a new school with only 455 students. West Forsyth still has a decent level of racial diversity, and if it were me I'd want to choose the school that is better established with a wider range of club, arts, and athletic opportunities.
