I completely understand your concerns, I have two children and I live in Concord NC which is next door to Huntersville. There are many good public and private schools in the area. Huntersville is located in District 1 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System, click on link: http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/boardeducation/schoolsByBoard.asp to view the schools in District 1. I definitely agree that Huntersville is family oriented, as is Concord and that's why I moved here. There are good elementary schools in Huntersville with grades above national and state average, such as Huntersville Elementary which is an Honor School of Excellence. There are also a few private schools if you want to consider that route. I would be happy to discuss this more with you in greater detail. What day and time would work for you and I'll give you a call? I can be reached at (704) 701-9206 or via email: email@example.com. Looking forward to speaking to you.
