I believe that Southeast Charlotte is the most outstanding area particularly when the schools are one of the major directions you may want to take. From a public school point of view, nearly all the elementary and middle schools are always amoung the highest rated in the CMS system Additionally, Myers Park, Providence High and Ardrey Keel are the three best performing high schools.
Among the private schools, the three most recognized non- denominational schools are Charlotte Country Day, Latin and Providence Day are located just off Providence Road. The denominational school such as the Catholic have 5 of the 6 elementary schoolsl, the one middle school and the high school. If you are interested in the Jewish schools they are located on Shalom Park which is also just off Providence Road. Lastly, there are several other well known Christian schools all within this area.
In addition to the schools, there are a large number of parks, libraries, organized sports and other organized activies for children.
