New in town and just wanted opinions on school districts. We currently are renting but will be buying a home before the school year starts. I've been told that the Collettsville district is really good by several people. Looking at the scores online it looks as if they are higher than most in the county. How is west Caldwell since that is the high school in that district? Thanks for any information.

Colletsville School ain't what it used to be. All those tree farmers up there in The Globe have imported cheap Mexican laborers and their offspring are stinking up the school and bringing the average test scores down.

Since our education system has been federalized, all the schools have to toe the line when it comes to spreading the equality myth. Nowadays our schools have to cater to the lowest common denominator in order to make all the bleeding heart, liberal bedwetters feel good about themselves. This results in smart White kids having to take a back seat so all the low-IQ invaders can catch up. So now your beautiful little White babies are basically just dumb Mexicans.

America is dead. Long live El Republica del Norte!

I would look to buy in the Lower Creek community. Very family oriented. That would be Lower Creek Elementary...William Lenoir Middle and Hibriten High. All good school! I do not like the location of William Lenoir but they are building a new school beside of Hibriten. Great teachers at all three schools. Also you are close to nearby attractions...not that Lenoir has tons of attractions ha. Close to Walmart anyway! Hope this was some help to you and welcome to our little town :)

I would say that printing the facts just blows Rube Walker's ignorant and prejudice comments out of the water. See how ignorant speculation is so off base?

Not sure I would trust the "facts" on this thread. North Carolina has only 100 counties, not 178.

In general, education is not valued here. Your best hope is the schools that feed into Hibriten.

That happened over 20 years ago, and it was not at a game.

I think those stats come from the number of school districts in the state, not the number of counties.

You are correct, my mistake...
178 school districts in the rankings not counties

I attended collettsville and west Caldwell and did great at both. They are both great schools and great teachers. There's bad at every school. Good luck with your search.

Hudson is the way to go! Great student body and outstanding teachers. Lots of parent involvement and community activities keep parents involved.

Collettsville Elementary is K-8 and they get the best scores in the county.
Davenport is usually second in the county.
If you can afford it, send them to Morganton Day School in Morganton.
If not, Collettsville should be your first choice, Davenport is 2nd (larger and has a more.....diverse population) and Lower Creek is 3rd.

Our kids were at Sawmills, Hudson Middle, and one just graduated from South. Great experiences at all 3!!! Had several family members with kids at West that recently graduated. They were not too positive about their experiences at WCHS!
