I personally moved here from Fairfield County in Connecticut seven years ago with three children school age and one about to enter school. I did a lot of legwork and found out soem information but to be honest with you what I learned most I found out from reading blogs about schools in areas I was intersted in moving to and talking to Realtors and people form the areas I wanted to live to get insights to schools specifically and websites to help me make a descsion onw hether i wanted to send my children there or not.
I have found the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system to be above average to excellent. I would be happy to discuss yoru needs and concners with the schools since I have children in High School down through elementary school... Feel free to either e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 704-519-7895.
Charlotte is a fairly spread out, fragmented city. Do you have a specific area that you know that you will need to be close to, such as work? Email me a bit more about your move details and I'll help guide you through your relocation. I'd love to help!
You might want to read the below Trulia Real Estate blog "Which areas surrounding Charlotte would be a nice place to relocate?" which has a lot of information on the schools in our area. There are a lot of options for public, charter, magnet and private schools. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.
I feel like my children have all received a private school-quality education through the magnet system and for free! The website for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools magnet program is:

The biggest difference between the way schools operate here in comparison to Westchester is that the districts are county-wide, so it is possible that reassignments can occur. I can explain it in more detail at your convenience.
