Timber Ridge Elemn. School as well. I saw that it was left out of the original list. I attended both Mount Bethel and Timber Ridge and loved Timber Ridge more. Also went to Dickerson Middle, had many friends at Dodgen that I met back up with at Walton. Went to Walton for a year and then went to private school for remaining high school years. That said, all of the public schools named are great and if I lived there I would send my kids to those schools!

Sprayberry and Kell are great East Cobb high schools too.

My children attend Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs and we are very happy.

It is a relatively new school(2yrs). The test scores were just released and they are right up there with the other top Cobb High Schools. The Elementary is Cheatham Hill and the Middle School is Lovinggood.

It is unlikely you will find any school in the metro without trailers but when there is a tornado, they bring the pupils inside the main building until the tornado is over.

The best schools are Walton, Pope, Lassiter, Sprayberry and McEachern High. All the schools the feed them are probably good too. I will say though that all the schools in Cobb are good schools. These are just the best of the best. But mine all went to South Cobb and got a good education.

I really appreciate for any feed back.
If you live in Marietta they have their own schools and they are good too. As for a 30 mile or 20 mile drive, you will not ever see your kids with that long a commute. 30 miles here would mean 2 or more hours each way during rush.

We actually have a school named "Lovinggood"? Gosh, I wonder what they teach there!

The three East Cobb districts that are no-brainers as some of the best school systems in Cobb county (and all of Georgia) are Pope, Walton and Lassiter. Our three kids went to Tritt Elementary, Hightower Trail middle and Pope High. Great teachers and administrators, high expectations, strong sports and clubs, super active PTA, and terrific kids.

Default COBB Schools

Harrison in West Cobb is actually a really great High School... Ranked 16th in the State for 2008. KMHS is also a good high school Ranked 32nd for 08. Be careful which elementary schools you look for within these districts... Ford, Vaughn and Bullard are all good.

Good Luck!
