I am a black single mother living in Ohio. I live in a predominantly white neighborhood and a great school system. I am raising my 11 year old brother and son. I was looking into moving to Marietta but told that we would not be safe there. I am not familiar with the area and I am not getting any good news about the Atlanta area. I do not want to move my boys in an area where I have to worry about our safety. I am not willing to move to the hood or a place where the focus is more on disciplining the children than educating them. Please help.

Marietta is general really isn't a bad place (and the Atlanta metro being what it is, many of the locations with a "Marietta" mailing address are actually located in unincoroporated "East Cobb" which has some of the best schools in the state.

Of course, Marietta schools are also quite good from what I've heard.

The key (as with all large and varied suburban areas) is to learn about the particulars of the area and avoid those areas in Marietta which might post an issue. I would recommend asking a local ... or a realtor ... to assist.
