Greetings! Can anyone offer feedback on this neighborhood and the school cluster? I'm in East Cobb now so it feels like another land out there!

Can't find much online about the community (hoping that's not a bad sign) but we're looking from somewhere active/family friendly since we have two young children--one starting K in the fall.

As for the schools, the ratings appear strong. Interested in any issues I should be tuned into...controversies, crowding, redistricting, what have you.

Also--if you do know the area--any idea about the traffic flow? I'm wondering if that left turn out of Thornwood to get to the highway is going to grind on us over time. I will have to commute downtown to Centennial Park. Google maps with no traffic says 30 mins which I find hard to believe.

Thanks so much!

Great neighborhod, great schools...go for it.

Thornwood together with nearby Chestnut Hill and Chastain Lakes are some of the best-kept "large neighborhood" secrets in Metro Atlanta.

People tend to overly focus on Walton-Pope-Lassiter. However, Kell and Sprayberry are excellent cluster options as well.
