Next, visit my website below and click on â€œCommunity Linksâ€. There are at least four good school review sites. Another good way to judge schools is to take advantage of Guilford Public Schools tour program. A school administrator will give you a tour of the school. They are also happy to discuss the school over the phone. A good place to begin is by calling the main office at 336.370.8100 or visiting their website http://www.gcsnc.com.
Growing up in Greensboro gives my â€œnickelâ€ tour some special knowledge. I am happy to give you and/or your family a driving tour of our city and surrounding county areas. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance. In any event, good luck!

Glad to hear that you are making headway. If you need any information about a specific school or area do not hesitate to let me know. Also, if you like I can give you a web account (no fee and no obligation) that will enable you to look at all the MLS listings within the triad from all companies. The site is linked directly to the MLS. So anything that is in there you will be able to see. If you want any information on a particular home you would just leave a note on that listing and the site will automatically contact me so I could find out the information for you. I am leaving a link below to one of my sites and it will enable you to see.
Good Luck and happy house hunting

You've given us tons to consider (reconsider?) and it certainly warrants another visit before drawing any conclusions. Husband is on a short trip down there now, and I will probably book one more trip yet later this spring. Thanks!
Best of luck! This is a GREAT community!
I have just looked on the local MLS and right now there are approx 12 single family homes available in the Western school district. I would say this is not near what is actually available because a lot of realtors no longer put schools on their listings due to all of the "line changes" that can be made. Instead, in the school field you will see "call local school board". Out of town clients have enjoyed the sight, http://www.greatschools.net as a resource for just about everything you want to know about a school. I have two kids that went through two different high schools and one in high school now and have my opinions about the schools they attended. Ask 10 people about schools, and you will probably get 10 different opinions. I would suggest you contact the school board at 336.370.8100 to have them fax you the particular areas that feed to the schools you are interested in. When is doubt of what school is assigned to an address, you can go to the Guilford County School system web sight, http://www.gcsnc.com and access the "school locator" which allows you to key in a specific address for school assignment. This sight will also address questions you may have on magnet schools.
