My husband and I are interested in relocating from Durham to the Leesville area of Raleigh. We're particularly interested in the area immediately adjacent to the Leesville schools complex. I'd like to know:

-The schools seem excellent. Are there any issues that I'm not aware of (we don't have kids yet, but want to be any issues with schools when we do have them). Any chance that if we do have kids that they will be redistricted elsewhere? We don't really understand the Wake County School System (does anyone?).

-Any information we need to know about crime in this area? It seems pretty quiet.

-Are the flight paths for RDU overhead? I didn't notice anything in the neighborhoods, but it could have been the times of day we were there.

-Any neighborhood recommendations? We are looking to spend <$350K and have 0.5 acres of land.

Thanks for the advice!

We lived in the Leesville area for 12 years. Our kids went through the entire Leesville campus system (elem-High) and we loved it. Leesville Elem has changed though and is now year around but is supposed to go back to a traditional calendar this year. We never had crime problems. Most of Leesville is not in the flight path unless you get up towards Harrington Grove, but we could hear airport noise like planes taking off but that never bothered us.

Depending on the type of home (age, design, etc.) there are different choices. Springdale has always been popular, but they are older homes mostly built in the 70's but most have large lots around 1 acre. Wyngate and Breeland have homes built in the 90's but smaller lots. Wynbrooke has newer homes and some lots in there are decent size.

The point is that you would have some pretty decent choices.
