We have school choice in greenville. If you want your child to go to another school, that's not his or her assigned school, then you apply and if and only if they have room after all the assigned kids are accounted for, then your child will get accepted.
Actually, there are several Montessori Schools. My order of rating would be Pelham Rd, Five Oaks/Simpsonville, State Park Rd & Mauldin. While there are some pretty indoctrinated church schools (Southside, Shannon Forest), others are just plain terrific preschools with an emphasis on good common values, especially Westminster. In the middle is First Presby, a fine school. Christ Church is a bit rigid/demanding. Not sure if St. Mary's has preschool, but it's a great school.... more
You are choosing wisely if you decide to move to the Greater Greenville, SC area. we have excellent healthcare systems in the Greenville Hospital System and St. Francis Health. My personal experience has been with Greenville Hospital System and I found their healthcare to be really good. Several years ago, I had some health problems and was pleased with the care I received there. Their Heart Center is world class as are many of their different healthcare disciplines (see the 3rd link to learn more. They are also a teaching hospital and recently the University of South Carolina has partnered with GHS.
With regard to our schools, the first link below will take you to the Greenville County Schools web site. There is a great deal of information including pages for each school. We have some of the best schools in the state in the Upstate Areas.
The past Holiday Weekend was filled with things to do from the Bike Race in Downtown Greenville, to Freedom Weekend Aloft hot air balloon race with many other activities/foods at that event in Simpsonville and even celebration of the Scottish Games and Festival at Furman University.
South Carolina State Housing now has a program for Palmetto Heroes for Police Officers, Fire Fighters, EMS, Teachers, Nurses, and Veterans.

Email or call me to discuss all these wonderful things about Greenville and South Carolina.
I have lived in Western NC for 30 years. The "No Child Left Behind" program was based on our public education system. It was later (under George W. Bush) implemented throughout the country. There are pockets of very good, public schools. The trick is finding them. How that compares on a national level, I don't know. I would assume, when "No Child Left Behind" was patterned after our system it was because NC was doing better than most states. There are also an abundance of private & charter schools available. Many of these schools offer scholarships and/or discounts to families with more than 1 child.... more
I grew up in Greenville on the Eastside - my zip code went from 29607 to 29615 from the seventies to the nineties - unincorporated Greenville county. Graduated from Furman and spent lots of time in the 29611 area. I own the property that I grew up in.
I'm an agent in Atlanta, but I have some greater Greenville perspective.
You are right, the 29611 area remains pretty rural and the "luxury developments" that have become a large part of Greenville's residential growth, really since the 1990's - from Thornblade to The Cliffs - well, you don't see much of that in 29611.
I can't really speak about the retail amenities and schools over that way, but I do know that 29611 culture is way different than 29601 downtown.
I'm sure that it' s a "good place to raise a family" but that is super-subjective and hard to know what that means to you.
If you wan t rural, you'll certainly find it in 29611.... more
