Default Greensboro, NC

Hi

I'm new to this forum and just wanted a little bit of advise, we are coming over for a relocation visit to Greensboro NC 2nd week in March with a view to looking at elementary schools for my son and then rental properties in that catchment area.

This is a very exciting and scary time for me as I am a full time mum to two - my son will be starting Kindergarten in Sept and I am just wondering if anyone knows of any toddler groups in the area, views on the best area for raising a family and the best elementary schools in the area. I understand that its a big city, but having no idea on the area at all, and would certainly welcome all views.

We have been recommended Summerfield, Fisher Park, New Irving, Oak Ridge. My husband will be working in Reidsville and is happy to travel 45mins/1hr max each way - look forward to hearing from you soon

Hi there, Fisher Park a little close to the City centre.Other areas seem OK.Cant help re schooling as we are wrinklies with kids in the UK.Been here 3 years and love it.Your coming as we are about warm up which is fortunate.We are in the south of the city near the airport in a lovely apartment complex with reasonable rates for a two bedroom apt and crime free.Cant tell you about certain northern areas of the city but if we can help PM us.
