As Larry stated, as much as it makes sense to be able to go to the closest high school to your neighborhood, it's not the case. When you're talking .1 mile, there isn't much to fight about it either when it comes to transportation, etc. I've seen houses 3 and 4 miles closer to Northern high school and the kids are sent to Northeast high school instead which is over 4 miles farther away. It looks like you're stuck in those crappy Northeast schools at your current location as Northern is heavily sought and is often at capacity based on neighborhood assignment alone. Not much of a chance for you to get in there. Those lines are supposed to change in a few years (for Northern and Northeast), hopefully they'll make more sense this time. Those nice neighborhoods that are 2 miles away from Northern should be going there and not Northeast. Let the families that live closer to Northeast, go there. That only makes sense.

Unfortunately sorry but the county school system decides where the lines are drawn. Now these boundaries are subject to change every year. If you are looking for a home in specific school district I would suggest having your buyers agent (if you have one) help you find a home within the area you would like to be in.

Now if you do not presently have a buyer's agent we would be happy to help you find that perfect home. We work in that area all the time.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Larry, I am part of a group from P&G being transferred there from Augusta Ga. and our relocation team is supposed to handle that.

Thanks for Your help.
