One additional question on the Price of Peace Church in Taylors. If you attend mass there and send your kids for religon can share your thoughts on the church and religon education services for the kids. Thx.  (Apr 20, 2013 | post #304)

Question on schools??? I have narrowed my search to Greer and Simpsonville. Both Oakview and Beuna Vista look great for elementary schools. My question is between Beck/JL Mann and Riverside Middle/High. In your opinion which is the better combination. We are leaning towards Riverside, however it seems the nicer sub-divisions are in Simpsonville(Cobbl estone, Spaulding, Kilgore, Kingsbridge, etc.). We also like the Thornblade area however they are linked to Northwood Middle School which I have not heard anything good. Do most of the Thornblade community try to send their kids to Riverside Middle? Please share your input. Thx.  (Apr 20, 2013 | post #303)

Hi there. My family are thinking of moving from LI to the Lake Norman or Lake Wylie area. Can someone please describe the differences and benefits of each area. Also is there any benefit to live on the NC or SC side of Lake Wylie? We currently live in one of the top school districts on LI...can you help me out with the top 3 school districts to choose in both locations. I really do not want to send my kids to private schools as that defeats the point of moving down to try to save money. Thx.  (Feb 11, 2013 | post #1)

Hi, Hoping some NY metro folks can give me some candid feedback. I recently visited Greenville and surrounding areas with my family and I loved it. I have 2 girls in 2nd and 3rd grade, my family is practicing Roman Catholic, and from Long Island. We are interested in a few areas Powdersville/Easle y, Greer, Simpsonville, and Greenville. I have mainly been looking at the following school districts...Wren, Powdersville, JL Mann, Riverside, and Blue Ridge. My wife has a few concerns that I was hoping you can shed light on...coming from NY she is concerned there is not much to do for the kids...we went to libraries and noticed not many if any after school programs like we have at out local library and the children's section are fairly limited. Are the activities for kids more run thru the schools and churches? We went to the Greenville Zoo and Children's Museum which were fairly limited, however we were there for only a few days, so would love to learn more what activities there are to do with the kids. Also she is concerned with us being Roman Catholic and the area being predom Baptist that it may be tough to fit in for the kids. Now in NY my kids go to religion class with many of their friends and she is worried that kids may judge our kids as different. In my mind all the folks I have met in the Greenville area have been very nice, however living and visiting can sometime be very different. I have never judged someone based on their religion. How has your experiences been and with a limited # of Catholic churches has it been tough to get a community feel when going to church? Most importantly if you can speak to your transition coming from the NY metro area for schools, church, activities, and anything that you think is important. Thanks.  (Feb 3, 2013 | post #292)
