Hi, I'm just a mom who had the same questions last year. I moved down to Greenville from Michigan. After buying a house in the wrong sub (due to schools) we were forced to put the house back on the market and move again. We are now at Woodland and LOVE IT. Two boys 3rd and 5th grade.

I am sure you don't want another static answer from a realtor so let me lead you to our school's website and an additional website that offers statistics on schools that the county does not offer. I have a two year old who is in a private school, but luckily Greenville County is the top ranked school district in SC so there are may options for you. If I can help answer any more questions please email me at and I would be more than happy to help! Amy

Greenville County has many great schools but they are all very different. I'm a firm believer that parent involvement makes a great school with great children. I have three children in school, my wife works in school administration and we are happy with our choice of schools. The area we live in is growing so fast that I'm planning to sell my own home for a huge profit and buy again in the same area! Send me an e-mail and We'll discuss in more detail. Thanks

Hey Kim I agree, The Taylors area is a great area for schools as well as Mauldin and Simpsonville! I went to Mauldin high and it was a good school! If you would like me to send you a free school report from all of the school give me a call or email!


also my myspace page has a lot of school info on it to check it out!

I have no house to sell nor do I sell real estate. I am just a homeowner and parent who happened to stumble upon this website.
Please look in the Simpsonville area aound highway 14 (I suppose they call this area the "Five Forks area lately) Tons of new homes being built, lots of young families, and easy access to I-385 and I-85. Elementary schools to consider include Bethel and Oakview. Both are excellent. My kids both attended Bethel and had a great elementary experience.

Good morning. I am a teacher in the public schools and taught in Greenville County for some time. I love the Taylors area and their schools. Especially, Taylors Elementary which feeds into Wade Hampton. Eastside High School is also fabulous. Greenville County gives parents the choice as to which schools their children may attend (as long as an application is on file for school choice), so don't let that stand in your way of your dream home--you can pretty much move anywhere in the county and have your children go where you choose. As far as subdivisions, I love Pebble Creek. It is a large, upscale area on the golf courses in Taylors, which feed great schools. Our home is for sale on 15 Applejack Lane in Pebble Creek with plenty of room for your children--they would love our huge recreation room downstairs--plus we have a fenced-in back yard. It is a little bit steep, but nothing that would prevent them from romping in the woods. You would love our hardwood floors, granite counters, and stainless appliances. There is a ton of privacy in Pebble Creek. It is very established with large trees and homes continue to appreciate. It is consistently voted one of Greenville's best neighborhoods. I don't know your price range, but Pebble Creek is worth the money. Botany Woods is also a very nice area in Taylors, again established feeding great schools. Check out our house--it's phenomenal!!! Thanks, Rebeca

Kim, Brushy Creek elementary and Mitchell Road elementary are two of the best school districts on the east side of town near Taylors and Greenville.

We are currently listing our house at 122 LeGrae Lane, Taylors, for $179,900, which is substantially higher than what we bought it for when we first moved here. The east side of Greenville/Taylors, holds it value well due to its close proximity to everything.

Call if you'd like to see our house.

Hello again Kim
Sounds like you are really in a turmoil as to what area the best schools are in. May I ask you a few questions by personal email? I know the area well and think I can help but it's not as easy as ABC, most of our schools are very good. Please go to my website noted below and email me from there. I will watch for your email.
