有娃家庭在哪里看房比较好啊。夏洛特还是三角区呢?我们哪个城市都行,如果有其他地方也欢迎推荐!主要考虑男娃的发展情况和认同感。看了其他帖子说北卡三角区好学区竞争压力巨大是真的不?

无脑Cary。压力算啥?再大有我们小时候大吗?

你小时候有这里这么多课外活动?Cary (take an example, Cary Academy)高中时间分配的压力比我小时候大多了,特别是小孩有AP classes, 加体育,跳舞,debate等等有比赛的课外活动,还打个工勤工俭学的话。我小时后在江浙一味读读书考考试太轻松了。

谢谢解释。我这个问题有点无知还请见谅。孩子平均都要上这么多课外活动吗?如果不上的话是不是在本地算很奇葩的。可否最后就选择一两个项目专攻呢?真的很不了解教育的实际情况因为娃还没到学龄 不过也得好好开始做好思想准备了。

区区课外活动能有多难?
什么体育,跳舞,debate,大学时候都参加过,骗小孩的玩意。真真玩的好的,有认真参加的,一个项目就2-3个最多。绝大部分就是跟着划水而已。
那个什么Cary Academy才764个人。以前一所高中随随便便3000人,还是市重点。
764个人竞争和3000个人竞争,有什么可比性。

城市的话夏洛特是北卡最大的城市,南方的金融中心。学区的话,三角区更好。

北卡三角区太村了。路还特别窄。我上次去它的首府罗利玩,连座高楼都没有。真是颠覆我的认知。夏洛特倒是像个现代化的城市,高楼大厦还有一些。就是中国人少。

大学资源当然是三角区更好,中小学两个都市区区差不多,都有不错的。Cary的亚裔不少,竞争还好吧,怎么也比加州好很多,就更别提跟国内比了。

整个NC就那样,RTP和CLT好也不过是羊群里的骆驼

Do you have kids that just went through U.S. high school? If you don't then spare me would you?
I came from similar schools in China and did 3 highschool years in 2 (in a so called 省重点?) and frankly the only thing you need to be good at is taking tests. Completely different story here.

hehe. Maybe I am from a different China or at least not from the the same periods as yours. Anyway, you are probably right if you compare NC with California, though. I reserve my opinion comparing California highschool pressure against Chinese highschool, afterall, I came out of Chinese highschool more than 3 decades ago. I realize things there certainly changed a lot. I suppose you also have kids that went through U.S. highschool systems?

I don't think it is required but there are various after school activities or clubs kids attend if they are interested in them. If you are in a sports team, in my area you commit at least 20 hrs a week training for it. Debate is not as bad but there are various competitions kids go. Dancing also have many scheduled competitions on the east coast. Anyway, all optional depending on your kids' interests.
