I'm looking to move to the metro west area of GA and was wondering what would be the best area for me. I'm not looking to stay directly in Atlanta but preferably near. I"m looking for the best middle schools/high schools and preferably no crime (impossible today). Are there any? Should I consider further south of GA? I was considering Lithonia but now having second thoughts, I'm hearing a lot has changed in the area. Can anyone out there help? Are Charter schools in GA better than public schools? What about Private, are they much more of a difference? Anyone who could help, please respond....

Looking to move within the next 6 months

I will ask the question I always ask -- where will you be working?

If you don't know yet, then I would make no decisions until I find a job...

Commuting here is difficult and expensive. Lithonia is actually on the East side of Atlanta (I think).

DeKalb isn't the strongest school system in ATlanta and Lithonia schools are generally really overcrowded and offer no diversity (not sure if that is important to you).
