The NC Report Card website is very helpful.

School assignments can change, though, so check with the county for current assignments before making a final decision. This site shows rankings by individual school, and ranks each school against state averages.

Hi Teri,
You can search the public and private schools in Durham on my website under the "Resources" section. This site will allow you to look at school reports and do comparisons. I would say the most frequently requested elementary school I see among my buyers are Creekside and Hope Valley. There are also several excellent private schools. The search engine will allow you to see them all. Good luck. http://www.mariescheuring.com.

Traditionally the schools on the SW side of the county have had better testting scores ie: Forest View, Creekside elementary Githens Middle & Jordan High School. I will say however, depending on a childs specific needs, there are some other excellent schools. I alwasy suggest that a parent talk directly with the principal at a particular school before making a decision.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you with your relocation from PA.

Thank you,

Hi Teri,

Welcome!

Just in case you would consider to relo to Wake county (which is the neighboring county). Here is the website of Wake County Schools Public System. From this website, you will be able to see the ABC scores, the End of Year Test score, and a lot other useful information for each school in Wake County.

From my website, you will also be able to see a list of private and home schools breaking down by county.

Please let us know if we can help in anyway during your relocation process to NC.
