I've mentioned that Conyers, Mcdonough, and even Covington are pretty diverse. I'm not sure how long it will remain that way because of "white flight" but most of the people moving to the area are families and older couples. Additionally there are qiute a number of interracial couples here. The commute to downtown Atlanta is about 35 minutes if there is no traffic, but during high traffic times I would suggest an alternate route than I20. There are also quite a few community colleges and sattelite schools that you may be interested in attending. McDonough is also great if you stay in the Ola school district. It's just a hop from South Rockdale where you can find some great schools. Lorraine and Barksdale elementary are pretty good. I've heard great things about General Davis middle and Heritage High. Not so sure about Memorial middle and Salem High. NEVER hear anything good. As far crime, it is everywhere and Conyers has its share. Unfortunately with the rise in population there is a rise in crime. I, however, feel safe and have not by God's grace and common sense been a victim. Both communities are very family oriented with lots of stay at home moms if that matters. Happy moving!
