Hi all! I have a customer who is interested in moving to the Wake Forest area but is unsure of crossing the line into Granville County since they don't know anything about the school system. Since I don't have any friends who have kids there, I thought I'd bring my question to you. I would love to hear from anyone who has any experience with the Elementary or Midddle Schools. Thanks!

Hi,

I don't have kids there, but we are also trying to research the schools. I know some folks that work in the school system, and from everything I hear Wilton Elementary is an excellent school. I've also heard Mount Energy is okay, and Creedmoor Elementary may be less ideal. We're looking at a home in Stem, and I'm trying to get information on Butner-Stem Elementary. Any info you find would be helpful.

South Granville HS is not as bad as the Wake County folks make it out to be, it was overcrowded but that has changed now that Granville Central HS has opened up. I have heard mix reviews of the middle schools.

Note all my comments above are related to southern Granville, I've heard that the Oxford area schools are not great, but in northern Granville it gets better.

Thanks,
Dawn

That is a very informative post, and I thank you.

Some of my neighbors work at the Schools in S. Granville. And with the positive changes that have been
occurring in the Southern Granville County Schools, I do not think they should be dismissed completely. Nor the area.
As many have seen, the area isn't near what some are portraying it to be in the negative sense .

If you do a search for Granville county schools, there are other threads about it. I'm just not sure where. It seems that now that things are getting more costly, people are wanting to go to Granville county because it seems more affordable.
