There is a wide variety of educational opportunities for all ages in downtown Raleigh.  Some of the area’s best public Magnet Schools and Private Schools are located in downtown Raleigh, not to mention NC State University.  Raleigh offers a unique urban living experience unlike many cities in the US.  The area is friendly, safe, walkable, and provides tons of educational opportunities through museums and cultural events.  It’s a great family oriented urban setting.  We live here, our son attends school here and our office is located here.  We love downtown Raleigh!
