If you are ok with older housing stock, I would look at the Chattahoochee HS zone in Johns Creek. It doesnít have the high Asian population of the other districts in the area, and is known as a well-rounded school. I think North Gwinnett HS is another good zone.

Yes a lot of these northern metro Atlanta schools are very competitive. That bring up the whole debate of whatís more important- getting a higher quality education or being able to finish higher in your class rank.

I am really amused by some of the posts assuming the family is non Asian and prefers to stay in a non Asian dominated area.

…...Although I will speculate they are.

Look into the south Forsyth County area, which borders Johns Creek. Awesome schools and a bit less expensive (taxes) than Johns Creek, which is in higher taxed Fulton County. Don't know what your budget is, but there are some terrific subdivisions in south Forsyth County - St. Marlo, Laurel Springs, Old Atlanta, etc. We lived in St Marlo for years and really loved it - golf course, tennis club, community swimming pool, diverse, nice people, beautifully landscaped.

Good luck!

Simpson Elementary is fine and one of the best elementary schools in the county.
Maybe, I don't know about this...but I generally like to look to the future. Elementary school may be fine, but OP would probably want to move to a better district for middle/high school.

Norcross High isnít terrible, itís just average compared to the high schools up the road in Johns Creek.

Exactly. I doubt the OP is looking for a school that is just average. Who is?

They have Norcross and the new Paul Duke STEM High School.

No idea about the middle school so you might be right.
