Like Larry, I am not sure what your question is, but there are a number of websites providing reports on schools. The problem with those is that by the time they are published, the stats given can be a year to 2 years old. I always suggest for questions regarding a specific school that you take the time to visit that school and ask to speak with the principal or someone in a position to answer your questions about the school. If a personal visit is not possible, then make a phone call to that school. This way you are getting the most current answers to your questions. ... more

Ernie Behrle answered:
The thing to remember about any of these online reports, as I have been told, most are a year or two old before they are published. Your best bet in any school inquiry is to visit the school in question in person or if that is not possible, call the school and ask to speak to someone who can answer those important questions you have. ... more

Hi Ellalee,

The assigned middle school for The Hills at South Point is Githens and there are a few choices for magnet schools. You can go to the Durham Public Schools website and explore the schools in Durham.

The neighborhood is very nice and the homes are beautiful. Right now, there is new construction in the neighborhood. The homes sell fast. The location is fantastic.

If you have any more questions about the schools or about neighborhoods, please just ask.

Hi,

I personally like the magnet schools the best for middle schools. Durham School of the Arts (a magnet middle & high school, 6th through 12th grade.) is a great school. My kids went there. The magnet schools have different themes like math, science or arts for example. They also provide bus transportation so you could live anywhere in Durham county. You will have to enter your kids in the lottery for these schools.

Here is the link to the Durham Public Schools, http://www.dpsnc.net. Once you decide on the schools you are most interested in your kids attending, you can search for homes by schoold district. If Trulia doesn't give you that option, let me know and I will send you homes within the school districts that you like.

My son went to Club Bulivard, and we liked it. Also even though we were not in the school zone we were still able to get in through a lottery program.

Todd Neal answered:
It depends. The north end of this zip, above I 70 can have quite a congested slow commute to UNC. The neighborhoods vary in terms of price point and there is quite a bit of financial distress in certain areas. I have sold several foreclosures there. But there are lots of beautiful neighborhoods with great features and easy access to store and restaurants. Best bet is to have an agent take you a tour and see for yourself. The more you see, the more expert you will become. ... more
