As a young, single professional with children, that has a long term job lined up, moving expenses paid, would you choose Midtown or somewhere OTP? Annually looking at 38-42k. Like the urbanite pleasures but cant resist peace & quiet. The commute will not be an issue as this would be a home office position.

Which would you choose?

Midtown or somewhere ITP. Atlanta isn't as dense as other cities, so even ITP you can get some "peace and quiet" but still enjoy being in an "urban environment".

If school is going to be a top priority- N. Fulton; i.e., SS, Roswell, JC, Alpharetta.

You don't have to go to the souless burbs(less SS) to get good schools for your kids. I would suggest living east of midtown in the popular intown neighborhoods like Lake Claire and Candler Park. Morningside and Mary Lin Elem, Inman Middle, and Grady High are just as good any North Fulton school. I am sure many will advocate for the City of Decatur as well. That would also be an option more in line with what you are looking for.
