Anyone have any information on the Dundwoody, Sandy springs and Northview school assignment. All of the homes in our price range seem to have this same school assignment. I know they don't look as good on paper as Alpharetta or Johns Creek but that is not everything sometimes.

What is Dunwoody like? Everytime we've come to the area and gone house hunting we've always focused on Alpharetta/Johns Creek. In replying to our previous threads, people have suggested that we look in Dunwoody also. We can afford some of it. The homes will need alot of work and updating but we are open to exploring this area.

Many thanks.

Sorry. I meant to say Dunwoody Springs Elementary and North Springs High. Have a little bit of a cold this week so I'm not thinking correctly.

Dunwoody Springs -- has in my opinion a fabulous principal. It doesn't however receive a lot of love from the community -- it is very diverse -- and while surrounded by very expensive homes, most families in those neighborhoods don't use public school. My preference is actually for Woodland -- I adore the principal and it has more community support.

A new elementary school is being built to relieve overcrowding at Woodland and Dunwoody Springs. The land has been purchased (off of Pitts Road) and will open, I believe, in 2010.

North Springs has magnet programs that are highly regarded in both science/math and the performing arts.

Your child (depending on how old they are now) may be eligible to attend Riverwood High as well which has an IB programme.

Hi, I'm new to this forum We live in Woodland district. In fact the kids in our subdivision walk to school. Our house is for sale (4bd 2.5 bath on cul-de-sac). You can email me and I can give you our MLS number if you are interested. It really is a great area.

Thanks for the help. Would my children not fit in or feel out of place if they didn't go to private school. We can't afford it with four children. It's just not an option. Would we be better sticking with our original choice of Johns Creek or Alpharetta where most children attend the public schools from what I am told. Thanks again.
