MGSD / CMS / UCPS / Charter/Private school are different school districts in great Charlotte area. There are good and bad schools in those school districts depending on which area you would like to relocate. Something not only schools you need to consider, but also neighborhood, crime, shopping center, price, community etc.
You can look at my blog to find out where is best area for school.

One is http://www.greatschools.org. This site ranks a school and has feedback given from other parents of their take on the school and when they wrote the review fo the school.
Another one I refer families to is http://www.ncreportcards.org. This oen shows you the demographics fo the schools and how they have fared on the state end of the year tests for the core subjects over the past three years. In addition you get to see how the school compares to other schools in the school system, district and state wide.
I found those two sites to be a very helpful in evaluting schools to decide where I wanted to send my children. I can tell you going into my seventh year in the school system my wife and I have been pleased with the choice we made and would not move our children out fo the schools they are in now...
If you need any addiitonal help on this or have any other questions about the area please feel free to e-mail me or give me a call......I would be glad to help you out in locating an area and home that works for you and your family.

When looking into schools in NC, an organization has put together a site - http://www.ncreportcards.org/src/ (copy and paste into your browser). This will give you a good idea of where to find a school that suits your needs.
Once you find schools that are satisfactory to your search, go to my website and use the "search by school" function - http://www.SearchCharlotte.com
Huntersville is a great area, I grew up there and recommend it. I've also heard good things about the Union County school system especially the Weddington area.
Please feel free to use the tools on my site and contact me if you would like more in depth information or would like to set up a showing for any house, townhouse or condo in the area.
You're a savvy buyer to be researching schools in Charlotte! There are many areas here with great schools - I am most familiar with South Charlotte schools (my 3 children attend/attended) and Union County schools. If schools are the most important criteria for your family, I would suggest narrowing your choices through research and visits, and then focus on neighborhoods that fit your lifestyle and budget. I've written a lot of blog posts on South Charlotte schools - check them out at http://www.MelissaBrownBlog.com.
For school rankings and scores, my favorite site is SchoolDigger.com Visit the site and click on NC or Charlotte, etc., and you can see how schools rank against each other. In the past year or so, however, CMS has stopped publishing school scores greater than 95, so it's more difficult to compare the highest-ranked schools. I'd be happy to answer an questions you have about the area, schools, neighborhoods, etc. Best wishes to you and your family!
I live and specialize in the northern end of Charlotte-Mecklenburg County and the Lake Norman area. You will find good reports when you research the Mooresville, NC schools as well as Iredell-Statesville schools. Mooresville is located in Iredell County. Websites: http://www.mgsd.k12.nc.us/MGSD/Home.html.
Here is a site with some Iredell County rankings: http://www.homefacts.com/schools/North-Carolina/Iredell-Coun I like the Huntersville area due to it's close proximity to Charlotte. Schools here are very good, but you may not find them as high on the list as some of the others. Lots of choices and decisions. Let me know if I can assist.
I have links to all the county websites on my website http://www.gloriafridrich.com and on our company website http://www.mycompassrealestate.com. You can check their rankings and end of grade scores, see what courses they offer etc.
I moved to Union County from NY 13 years ago and my children have attended Union county schools and I have been very happy with their education. I would be happy to answer any questions you have about the schools, the area and give you names of different subdivision that attend schools that you choose.
Compass Real Estate Group has agents that also live and service the Huntersville area so we can help you with the same information there as well. Please don't hesitate to contact us we will be happy to assist you with all aspects of your relocation.
