Thanks. Yes - Ellis was one I was looking into. It sounded pretty good though we haven't visited it yet - just drove by. I've heard only good things about Nannie Berry. Do you know anything about Hunter Middle?

You could not pick a finer place to relo to. NO state income tax, and it is not going to change for a long time to come. Political 3rd rail; they tried 9 years ago, ALL voted out.

Very low property taxes, no car prop tax.

Hendersonville schools quite good. Nashville traffic mild vs cities of like size.
bobtn - where is this 400 acre lifestyle center being built?

No - they don't. Here are some links that might help. You can find the school calender on the sumner cty school site.

There is one year round school in Sumner County. As scarey as "year round" sounds, it is actually a nice schedule. You can see the two calendars for next year at sumnerschools.org. FYI: I am originally from Southern Indiana and love it here!

Hunter is okay. One of my assistants was there for several years. She said the monitoring of the students is not as good as Ellis. That is also where they service some of the behavior students. However, with all of that said, it has the reputation of being a good school.

Also I would love to hear any input from anyone else who has recently relocated to this area or anything anyone has to share about Hendersonville..good or bad.
Thanks
It is very different than a big city, culturally speaking. Real estate is inexpensive compared to the North. The restaurants and stores are getting better/ It has little or no crime. The real estate prices are all over the place,some houses cheap and some very high. It looks like a good place to live. I have been here 2 years now. The taxes are so low I had to ask twice if the figure was correct. Be careful if you are from out of town because since everything seems cheap, you do not want to overpay. What kind of work do you do? I lived in Chicagoland and the pay down here is definately a joke. The weather is delightful though. All in all it seems pretty good but I do miss the North. My family is still up North so I get homesick for all the good restaurants and I do not mean chains.

I am a stay at home mom, my husband currently is a mortgage broker here on the island. He would be getting on the police department in Hendersonville when we make our move. I'm sure it will be a big adjustment for us as we have both lived here all our lives. But it is one we are looking forward to make
