In addition to Meadowmont Village, a sprawling array of shops, restaurants, playgrounds and office space adjacent to Meadowmont’s residential areas, this neighborhood also boasts some of Chapel Hill’s best public schools. Residents can walk – yes, walk! – their elementary schoolers to class at nearby Rashkis Elementary. Older students can attend Culbreth Middle School, where technology is embraced and students are pushed to reach their potential. Bonus: Culbreth Principal Beverly Rudolph is Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools’ 2016 Principal of the Year! There’s also good news for high schoolers in Meadowmont: East Chapel Hill High consistently ranks among the top SAT scores of public schools in the state, and its students are heavily involved in the arts and community service.
If you and your family enjoy outdoor events, local food and going to the movies, Southern Village may be just the place for you. A variety of living options, from apartments to single-family homes, provide flexibility for families of all sizes, and it also falls under the Culbreth Middle School district. For younger students, Mary Scroggs Elementary is right in the neighborhood, and many students and teachers even bike to school. The newest of the CHCCS district high schools, Carrboro High School will be there to welcome your teenagers. CHS is both academically excellent and LEED certified for energy efficiency. Need more convincing? There’s even a hotel to keep any visiting family members close by.
The Winmore community is the newest neighborhood on our list, and was built to be green! This peaceful and charming area is also adjacent to a central village green of shops and offices, as well as 2 playgrounds and 2 miles of greenway trails along Bolin Creek. Some shop owners even choose to live above their retail or office space. Nearby Estes Elementary, Smith Middle School and East Chapel Hill High School serve students here. Even better?
