Possible move to North Carolina...Chapel Hill ?

I have always liked Chapel Hill and my company has a opening in North Carolina and we work out of our homes so I can live where I want. My wife is a nurse and is in school to get her masters. Are Chapel Hill elementary and middle schools good ?..any other suggestions in terms of places to live ?

Durham, NC

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro public school system is among THE best in the nation. Just beware that much of Chapel Hill is very expensive.

You may also want to try out southwest Durham near Southpoint Mall. The schools there aren't quite as good but homes are much more affordable.

Chapel Hill is a wonderful place with good schools, but it is VERY VERY expensive. You might want to look into Carrboro, which is so close to Chapel Hill as to be virtually indistinguishable and is cheaper. Durham is also very close, but you'd need to be careful which school area you were in.
