Just curious...are there any noticeable concentrations of middle class Mexican Americans in the Atlanta area? There has been a sizable population here for decades now but I can't think of such an area. I know most people would assume they live among other nationalities and ethnicities but I don't see any really in middle class and upper income communities in the Atlanta area either. I just thought this was odd seeing that every other group has an ethnic enclave for middle class and higher to choose from or live in more mixed communities. Can someone fill me in on maybe something cultural I may be missing out on or the part of town I am apparently oblivious to?

If someone is of Mexican descent and a white collar professional more than likely they have assimilated into overall ATL society,rather than a Balkanized group

Well there's hispanics around Buford Highway in Dekalb and Gwinnett, and in North Clayton County. Not exactly sure if they're middle class or not but you can ask them yourself if you want.

I imagine you would find some if you network with parents at AIS. There is a spanish language track and undoubtably, many are wealthy or at least middle class people of Mexican descent. Half the student population is from outside the U.S. You could check the areas of Buckhead around the school. Apart from those parents, I do know of at least a few. Brookhaven and Buckhead/Sandy Springs are the areas in which they live but, as the previous poster indicated, they are assimilated into just a regular neighborhood composed of a mismash of folk of different backgrounds (who have $$$).
