Niche.com recently ranked 20 best places to raise a family in the Charlotte metro area and the Ballantyne area, which was broken down into two sections as Ballantyne West and Ballantyne East, ranked #6 and #7, respectively on the 2019 list. Ballantyne received A+ ratings as an overall grade for both areas.  The Niche.com grading/scoring system takes into account key factors, such as the quality of local schools, safety, affordability, and access to family amenities, in an attempt to measure the appeal of an area for families.

Because quality of schools is so critical in a family's decision-making about where to live and raise a family, it's worth pointing out that Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte's Ballantyne area has been ranked the #1 high school out of the top 20 by Niche.com. The school received an A+ for its overall grade as well as for academics and college prep and was  ranked 375 out of the 18,841 best public high schools in America, putting it in the top 2% of high schools nationwide. U.S. News & World Report also recently rated Ardrey Kell High School highly, ranking it #384 nationally and #15 in the State of North Carolina. Niche.com ranked Ardrey Kell High School #7 out of 501 public high schools in North Carolina for best college prep and #8 in state ranking out of 536 high schools surveyed.

Barbara Todaro thanks, Barbara! Having lived in Ballantyne since 2001 when we had not a singly traffic light in the entire area, I've watched this area explode in growth and know it like the back of my hand. When we first moved here, lots of agents in town thought I'd moved out to the boonies... no one thinks that any more!

Nina,

That bodes well for the fture of Charlotte, the better the education system, the better the future of that city.  When we started working with the Manhattan Beach School District while live in LA, the CA school system ranked at 49 out of 50 states overall.  My nephew who wrote a paper on the Tsars of Russia, was told by the teacher that she did not know any Tsars..  That got my mother in a lather and she went to the principal with a research paper--she was a head research librarian for Nabisco (food science was her specialty). She was fuming and sputtering like only a French woman could...LOL

Good morning, Nina - these kinds of rankings can attract a lot of eyes and create a certain buzz in the community.  The appeal of Ballantyne as a highly rated pkace to raise a family will hopefully continue to advance awareness there.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... the "scary" thing is that your story does not surprise me in the least. When our older daughter was doing her doctorate studies in history at the University of Wyoming, the majority of the professors had never been out of the country even once!

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... there's been buzz around the Ballantyne area for quite a number of years now. A few years ago, Realtor.com had it as one of the five most visited zip codes on their search page. I often get calls from people from out of town asking how they can search for homes in Ballantyne City. I tell them there's no such city... it's just a part of the City of Charlotte.

Brian England hi Brian... I've not had to raise a family in Ballantyne... but it's been a great place to live for the past 18 years even for us empty-nesters! But no doubt, families love living here.
