My family is relocating to the LR are from KS. What city would be best for an interracial family, Benton or Maumelle? We are looking for a good school for our kids, church and friendly welcoming community. We have 2 kids in high school who are rather shy and nervous about fitting in and we are coming from a small 3a school to most likely a 5a so it will be a big change for them and I want to hopefully make the transition for them as easy as possible. Also is there a nice housing area that is recommended? Or where to stay away from? I would appreciate any input as we don't know the area at all. Thank you

Maumelle is more affluent and nicer. It's basically a planned community whereas Benton is your average small to medium sized town. I think if you're in Maumelle your kids would go to Maumelle High or maybe NLR depending on exactly where you settle. CAC School is right there by the Maumelle/NLR exit so maybe you can look at that. I don't like the Benton/Bryant area too much to be honest. A lot of frontage roads and chain restaurants. I don't think either are bad areas though. Maybe drive around both to feel it out.
