My family is looking forward to moving to NC but I have 4 boys under 13 and I need to make the right decision. I know there are some people on here that can help. If you are willing please answer these questions....

We are looking for a small community....maybe even renting a farm or a lake house, something to entertain the kids when they aren't playing sports.

What communities/schools have good schools AND athletics (basketball, football and/or baseball) for youth?
What communities/schools are known for high school football?
What communities/schools are known for high school basketball?
Do middle schools in NC play 6/7/8 grade basketball separately or are they together on one team?
Do middle schools in NC play 6/7/8 grade football separately or are they together on one team?
What is student population for the different classes in high school....meaning, what class is a student population of 1,200?

We are not bound to any area of the state, we are wide open as to where we live. We are just trying to find a place that is as close to the situation as possible from where we care coming from. What would some of your recommendations for places to live that we wouldn't get swallowed up in population?

I appreciate any help provided. :)

I liked the Wilmington NC rural areas. Shallotte might be worth. Look. Its about an hour from Mrytle beach and about 30 minutes from Wilmington. I don't know the specs on it and its been over 20 years since I spent a year there but it might be a place to look if it hasn't gone to shit.

Cary NC is a great town. It's actually pretty populated, but you wouldn't tell it from looking at downtown.

Posted Image

It's extremely clean, with great schools and a great economy due to being near the Research Triangle Park of the Raleigh/Durham area. Basically a suburb of Raleigh that grew into it a medium sized city. The cost of living is pretty high though. There are other good suburbs like Garner and Knightdale. Garner usually has good high-school football, and everyone up there takes basketball very seriously. Not sure how they break down the grades though.

Oh, and also here is my usual reference to this site. Helps you compare your current city to any city you're interested in.

Only other place in NC I'm very familiar with is Asheville. Nice town, but I'll go ahead and yell ya it's way too liberal for your tastes.

Yeah, decent sized %.

73.14% of people are white, 7.98% are black, 13.06% are asian, 0.41% are native american, and 5.41% claim 'Other'.
11.11% of the people in Cary, NC, claim hispanic ethnicity (meaning 88.89% are non-hispanic).

Almost anywhere in western North Carolina would be a pretty nice place to live from my experiences visiting there. Pretty much anything from Asheville, Hendersonville and Burnsville westward would be fine. Love the North Carolina mountains! Waynesville area to Hendersonville expecially nice....

Believe it or not, I rolled through the triangle a couple of years ago on my way to D.C to go visit my little sister, and even as a Gator fan sporting gear I felt a little awkward and got some looks from the locals when we stopped for gas.

We had stopped at the exit that leads to Clemson, in S.C. too, to get something to eat, and got even more looks... more like stares. :D
