The 3 most important words in real estate are thought to be location, location, location. They may be right, but if the house is perfect but the kids can't get a decent education, it's pointless as those kids will spend the rest of their lives playing catch-up. Sounds like a healthy family needs to be looking for homes in the South Charlotte Middle School district. That is the right location

Debe - this is excellent information!  Schools were a big factor in us deciding where we wanted to live when we relocated to NC from California.  The schools in North Carolina are excellent. So for South Charlotte Middle School to stand out among some of the best in Charlotte Mecklenburg tells me they are undoubtedly one of the top in the nation.
