I’m planning to move over there from NY and I would like to know if they are good jobs and schools for me and my 13year old daughter.

It depends what your career field is. Right now, most of the triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) is suffering because so many of their jobs are based in RTP which is mostly tech companies and they are cutting back. (ex. IBM headquarters). We just moved because my husband couldn’t find a software engineering position after being laid off GlaxoSmithKline and Quintiles are also big companies there in the pharmaceutical field. As far as schools go, I would probably send my child to private school or live in Cary as opposed to Raleigh. I don’t like the way Raleigh buses kids all over the city to fill racial quotas in each school. I think kids should go to the high school that is closest to their house. If you can’t live in Cary then i would live in North Raleigh near wakefield. Ive heard that the hs in wakefield isn’t bad.
