No, it is in the Orange County school district. Very good schools, in fact. Grady Brown Elementary, Standford Jr High and Cedar Ridge High School.

May I help with any other questions?

One of the important things to know about the Chapel Hill Carrboro School System CHCSS is that school assignment is generally based on neighborhood proximity to the school AND socio-economic diversity based on free and reduced lunch. Every time a new school is built, people are redistricted. If you are absolutely set on certain schools, then definitely live close to the schools so that it is not an issue should another school be built. No new schools are expected for several years.

As a generalization, almost all the schools are fairly equivalent. There are die hard parent advocates at each school. The differences become more evident at the high school level. As you already know, the biggest effect you an have on your kids is to spend time reading to and with them, discussing books, etc. What you do at home has an effect.

This is a fabulous area to raise a family. Our kids loved living here.

There are programs for children with Autism within the Chapel Hill school district and through UNC hospital as well. It's one of the benefits of living in an educated and liberal area with a stronger than average local economy.

To find out more about the programs available through the school system I would check out this link:

Hello Jeff

Here is a link to Orange County NC Public Schools Website for additional information.

Here is the link for Orange County NC District for those new to the public schools for information regarding registration and other helpful information.

Durham is just 8 miles from Orange County this article addresses North Carolina Drop Out Rates for Orange and Durham and neighboring counties.

This last article is most current March 2010 and addresses drop out decrease among other high school related issues and statistics.
