When moving to a new area, it is important to take a look at the schools your children may be attending. There are so many fantastic resources for finding information about schools, including NC School Report Cards, The National Center for Educational Statistics, and Great Schools. You can find student/teacher ratios, test scores, and more! Everyone wants the BEST for their children, and great schools provide services to help your children succeed in a safe and happy environment.
As a parent of a soon-to-be 9th grader, I have been through the “first day of school” jitters. We are blessed to be residents of Cabarrus County, so my son attended a local Elementary School and two of the local Middle Schools. We have worked our way up to high school, and each time we move up to a new school I feel less and less worried about what that new leg of the journey will bring. Education is important to us, and I am pleased with the work this county is doing to make a difference in each child’s life.
If you are moving to a home in or around Charlotte- check out local schools and talk to residents! Find out which area (and school system) is a good fit for you.
