I agree that checking websites for information and statistics is a great place to start. Another website, besides the ones previously mentioned, is http://www.GreatSchools.net As a parent of two, I am not sure I would leave all the answer to a website. I would want to visit the schools, meet the principals and teachers, then talk to some parents. I feel a great community makes a great school. If the community has things to do, places to go and great housing, it should have great schools. I am a local resident and think Mebane is a great place to live. I can assist you with finding those people to talk with - just let me know if I can help!
Here are three web reference sites for you to research. Hope this helps.
1. Alamance-Burlington School System (See Web References)
Should you decide to relocate to the Mebane/Alamance County area and are in need of a Realtor, please let me know if I can be of assistance to you.
