As a mom to 5, we have always pretty much decided on what area to live in by how good the schools are ! It is so important ! And I know the feeling of being overwhelmed with it all. We just packed up and moved from Charlotte to Florida…talk about a big change ! And that bow sweatshirt is just to die for ! And I have ordered a few mugs from fox and clover. Love them all. Have a great day girl!
We bought our house based on schools! I would much rather live in my adorable home town but the schools suck there so we moved about 15 minutes northwest and we're so happy we did. We always say once the kids are out of school we'll move to our dream house in the town with bad schools 🙂
I hear you Kimm! This is one of the main reasons we are moving. But in Charleston there are SO many elementary schools, and the two areas we are looking in they are all great! One of the main reasons we loved Daniel Island so much was because of the school and the idea of them being arms reach away……..but all of a sudden we have heard the school is known for bullying!?!?! I know all that could just be hearsay, but goodness I couldn't handle that! Ugh so many things to think about!
Girl preach!!! I know, Todd just want to be out in the country on water, but that's just not happening while our little ones are in school! It such a hard decision here because there are so many highly rated wonderful schools, especially in the two areas we are looking, so know it's jut making the choice for which is better for Carson and Taylor! When our babies are all grown up we will have to visit each in our dream houses 😉
Hey lady! Our oldest has gone through 1st grade and is now in 2nd at Daniel Island School…I can't say enough great things about it. She went to kindergarten at Ashley Hall, downtown, and so our expectations were really high. And honestly, DI school is about as close to a private school as a public school can get. The principal is wonderful, and the bullying issues you may have heard rumors of were supposedly happening in the middle school, and took place while the previous principal was there. (I read some online feedback about that issue before we moved, and so I had the same concerns and questions.) I love how close everything on the island is…grocery shopping, parks, fun concerts and events, cute stores, great restaurants, and most importantly the school. It's so nice to know that if one of my girls was sick or needed me, I could literally be there in 3 minutes. Anyway, best of luck with your decision! Everything always works out in the end the way it's supposed to, and you just have to do what's best for your family 🙂 I'm happy to chat about the different neighborhoods on the island, or the school if you need any info…Have a great Thanksgiving!
Hey Brianna!! This makes me so so happy to hear, like I can't thank you enough for telling me this!!! I feel the same way and I have been in love with the island for years!! We are hoping to come tour the school next week, so I'll be sure to keep in touch with what we decide! And seriously thank you again for reaching out and telling me all of this!
