YES! There are several excellent schools. Are you looking for public? Private? Elementary? Middle? High? Does your student require special programs? What are your student’s special interests? Not to over simplify your quest but choosing a school is very similar to choosing your home. What are your absolute requirements? General wants? Then your dream list? Everybody needs education, but what specifically are your absolute requirements? General wants? Your dream list? There are several websites that offer school ratings and statistics to help narrow your search. MEMPHIS Magazine has a whole section on education in the August issue. Good Luck!
Moving to Memphis as a single female I would look at the Germantown area. There is some redevelopment downtown so this may be another option, but on the conservative end German town has a good mix of young professionals, and it is easy to get to everything...Malls, the interstate, really neat restaurants and nightlife, the neighbourhoods are clean and relatively safe.... more

You can visit Liberty Land Amusement Park, Graceland, home of Elvis Presley,there are botanical gardens tons of museums including Mud Island, you can visit Sun Studio and take a tour of it, there is an IMAX, you can tour Cordova winery and much much more. There is also "Memphis in May" only the biggest BBQ event ever! All of this and I haven't left Memphis yet! Your family will find plenty of art museums etc. I know you will find plenty to do with your family!... more
What a coincidence, I am in the process of investigating the Memphis area as we are planning for a move. There are a lot of great communities in the Memphis metro area.
Collierville is a nice area. We have friends who live there and have sent their kids to school there. They are well pleased with the area. We are also investigating the northern part of Mississippi ie Southaven, Olive Branch, Horn Lake. Like most Metropolitan areas there are areas that have a higher crime rate and areas that are great living. If you would like to chat more, my email is carriecrowell.com. I have a close friend who is a Realtor, if you would like her info I would be happy to give as well. Good luck!
p.s. cost of living is pretty good.... more
