Yep... The quality of the schools in the clusters of Forsyth County Schools anchored by the exceptionally highly-rated South Forsyth and Lambert high schools is exactly one major reason why homes being re-sold in Forsyth County south of Exit 13 on Georgia 400 along Georgia 141 may be on the more expensive side and are selling out very quickly.

That that area of South Forsyth County has become so popular with Asian residents and newcomers as well as affluent residents and newcomers in general is another major factor that has made the real estate market in that area even more competitive than it already would be just by being in the Northern suburbs along the booming Georgia 400 North corridor.

Like was mentioned before, South Forsyth County is a very popular area for relocation right now with its prime location along the Georgia 400 North corridor in close proximity to a large cluster of jobs, much retail, Lake Lanier and the popular and beloved scenic Blue Ridge/Southern Appalachian mountain ranges of North Georgia, Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee.

South Forsyth County is a very prime area right now.

There must be jobs for all these new people. Sounds like the corporations in Atlanta are bringing in Indian H1B visa workers by the boatload. Also seems like many whites have left the area, as Alpharetta, John’s Creek and especially Forsyth county where overwhelmingly white just 15 years ago.

Nothing wrong with visual diversity, but I’m wondering how cultural diversity (beyond lots of cool ethnic restaurants) is working out. I personally like to be able to talk to neighbors on the same cultural wavelength. They don’t ALL have to be, but for comfort, most of them should. Not a lot to ask for in your own country imo.

Most of these skilled Asian immigrants, desire and are prepared for new cultures and diversity by choice. Their countrymen who aren’t, just don’t come. What choice do Americans have?

Though the children of these highly educated Asians in John’s Creek (for example) will grow up into the main steam and add to the areas brain power.

Most of the places I have lived before in California and Texas had these expensive and desirable suburbs with dense Indian and Asian populations. Examples are Cupertino, CA Irvine, CA and Frisco, TX. The schools in these suburbs tend to be the best in the state and country. Once the Asian population becomes noticeable usually white flight occurs. Interesting observation is that these areas still remain very pricey and desirable after the white flight.

It's usually the diversity created by the first generation Asian and Indian immigrants that makes the schools top rated and the area desirable.

What choices do Americans like you and me have- There are plenty of desirable suburbs with less diversity where you can talk to your neighbors on the same cultural wave length. Lets leave Alpharetta/Milton/SouthForsyth/Johnscreek alone and pick the other desirable suburbs if we don't feel comfortable living in these areas.

Though, I am sure that there have been multiple instances where white residents have moved out of a neighborhood because they did not feel comfortable with the increasing level of diversity in the neighborhood, white flight does not necessarily appear to be a major problem in North Fulton and South Forsyth counties for the most part at this time, particularly with the extremely high quality of the public schools, the job opportunities and all of the amenities in the area.

Take for example the City of Alpharetta proper. Between 2010 and 2017, the overall white population in the City of Alpharetta proper appeared to grow by about just over 8% while the Asian population appeared to grow by almost 39% between 2010 and 2017.

It does not necessarily appear that whites are fleeing in the area en masse in the presence of a rising Asian population.

It just much more appears that the Asian population is growing faster than the white population is growing in the aforementioned parts of North Fulton and South Forsyth counties.

With all of the economic opportunities and amenities that North Fulton and South Forsyth counties have to offer, whites are still moving into the area in very robust numbers. Asians just appear to be moving into the area in even more robust numbers than whites.

Also, while the areas in question are not necessarily as overwhelmingly predominantly white as they were in the past, and while many parts of the areas in question are experiencing rapid growth in their Asian and minority populations, the population of areas like Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Forsyth County remains overwhelmingly predominantly white overall.

As of 2017, whites as a whole made up over 66% of Alpharetta's population, 60% of Johns Creek's population, and nearly 81% of Forsyth County's population.

Because of the top-notch amenities of the area (top-notch amenities that include lots of high-quality retail options, nice public parks, closeness to recreational areas like Lake Lanier and the Blue Ridge Mountains, and some of the highest-quality public schools in the entire Southeastern U.S.), North Fulton and South Forsyth counties are areas that appeal extremely heavily to all races and ethnicities of people, including both whites and Asians.

Make no mistake, while North Fulton and South Forsyth counties seem to be increasingly popular with Asians and other minorities, North Fulton and South Forsyth counties is an area that also continues to be extremely popular with and has much appeal to white newcomers as well.

America is built on immigration. The culture diversity thing could be said for Irish and Germany immigrants as well, to a less degree.

Please talk to your non white neighbors more often and you will find common topics.

PS: a lot of Asians are second generations but you might mistaken as H1Bs.
