We are considering a move from NY to Snellville. Like so many others that are attracted to the area, we have been amazed at the real-estate listings for new construction in these subdivisions. I see that they are mostly in the South Gwinnett school district.
Is this school system much more diverse than, lets say, Brookwood??
Are these new construction developments not a wise idea for a couple looking for an area that is not very diverse?
Those homes and communities look amazing, but it is not worth it to us if we are going to be unhappy with the mix.

Please advise. Thanks.

Yes, the South Gwinnett School area is very diverse. It's right at the county line with DeKalb County. But to be honest, Gwinnett is more of an urban area than suburban compared to other suburbs of Atlanta. I consider this a positive (professional job opportunities and entertainment), but you may not.

Now, if you are looking for the Metro area's best schools, Gwinnett has plenty. Consider the Duluth, Suwanee, Brookwood, Central-Gwinnett, Collins Hills or Dacula area schools. I wouldn't say they are not diverse, but they are great schools in great areas of Gwinnett.

Coming from NY, I do think Gwinnett will be the type of suburb that you are looking for: great shopping, entertainment, sports and fine dining. I live in the Dacula High school district and I have seen several NY license plates at the schools (new transplants). I don't know if that means anything to you, but thought I would mention that.

Good luck in your search.
