Happy Mother's day Marsha,
I have links to two different school searches posted on my website which will provide all the information you need. In addition to the Durham and Wake Public schools, there are outstanding private schools in the area. When schools are a major consideration, it will save you time if you select the district you want and then search for homes in that area. Especially in Wake County, redistricting on a frequent basis is common, so it is a good idea to veryify the district prior to making an offer to purchase. Good luck!

You can find the information you are looking for at the web address listed below. Even though it says Chatham County on the website, it covers the entire region.

You simply go to the website, look for "Market Data", and then select the area you are interested in (Raleigh, Apex, Cary, ...etc). You will be given a page that will include housing information at the top, and then the school information for that area. There is no need to guess what schools are where.

You can search a couple of ways: You can go to:http://www.ncreportcards.org/src/ to get the school "report card" which will give you some metrics such as class size and End of Grade test results. You can also get info for schools and other community info by visiting http://www.Horizon1Realty.com and clicking on the "Community Info" tab at the top. I would also suggest googling Durham County and Wake County Schools to get the latest news reports on the state of the school systems.

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

I wish you the best

This is Wake and Durham county school websites. You should be able to search their test scores.
