If you are asking if Githens is the assigned Middle School the answer is yes. Creekside is the assigned Elementary school and Jordan is the assigned High School.
I live here in Durham and know it well. While I certainly list and sell homes, I specialize in Buyer Brokering, representing buyers the way listing agents represent Sellers. While it's both legal and standard operating procedure here in North Carolina, on thing I will never do is work as a "Dual Agent"; in other words putting myself in the middle supposedly representing both buyer and seller. My company and I believe this presents a conflict of interest and that the only person well represent in dual agency is the agent themselves whose focus is more on retaining the entire commission rather than on doing what's best for their client. If you decide to work with me, you can rest assured I will be focused on your needs and on getting you the best possible deal.

Here is some information on Magnet Year Round Durham Public School Programs.
In these schools it is a lottery system. I do think you are going to be a bit late to apply but check with the DPS Office and let them know your circumstance and that you are a relocating educator. If you need my help let me know and I will also contact them for you. If you also need help in finding somewhere to find a home to buy or even to rent please let me know.

Best Wishes on your home search and let me know if I could be of assistance.
You did not indicate a specific property so it's going to be very hard for any of us to give you a good answer. If you're referring to Covington Place in Chapel Hill, that's roughly 10 minutes or less to UNC and you could walk to where you would pick up the bus. I live in Durham and the only Covington I know of is located in Treyburn which would be a good 30-40 minutes from UNC.
If I can be of any assistnace feel free to contact me directly through my profile here on Truila, I specialize in Buyer Side Brokering.... more
R.N. Harris is a magnet school, which means that it does not have a specific residency zone. If your child is able to enroll there after entering the lottery in February 2013, you can request that the bus pick up and drop off your child.
Feel free to contact me with any more questions.

Parkwood has an unjustified bad rep. It's test scores may not be as high as one of the other SW Durham elementary schools, but I know 3 families whose kids currently attend Parkwood, and they are very happy with it. My kids do not attend Parkwood (we're in Southwest Elem. district, where they are in 1st and 4th grade), but if we lived in the Parkwood district, I would have absolutely no hesitation to send my kids there. As a former educator, my opinion is that test scores are not as important as some folks believe. I would recommend that you call the school and schedule a tour if you have a child who will be attending kindergarten next year.... more
