You could be happy in many neighborhoods here. Charlotte metro is business and family friendly. The school choice is so broad depending on what you are wanting for your teens. My favorite neighborhoods are the large planned unit developments for families. Kids and teens are always kept busy. Highland Creek has been one of Charlotte's best selling neighborhoods- golf, tennis, walking trails, pools, playgrounds. The same can be said of Baxter Village in Fort Mill, SC minus the golf. You might check http://www.greatschools.org or http://www.ncreportcard.org.
If you want a small more intimate neighborhood, the Trotter Builders have built several brick home neighborhoods through out Charlotte Metro. The historic neighborhoods of Charlotte have a good vibe and are great walking neighborhoods. For a more modern feel, try the Providence or Ballantyne sections of Charlotte.
In short, there is a huge variety of housing and school choice. I suggest that you have coffee with a realtor soon to discuss what you want. Drive the area in the morning and evening to get a feel of the neighborhoods. You will get an idea of the children and teens ages by the toys and equipment in the yards.
Wishing you success,
