When you say Atlanta, are you talking about just the city or the suburbs too ?

I really don't know Atlanta that well, so I am open to anything. I just want a safe neighborhood with good schools and not a long commute

All of the posters on here will need the information listed below before they will be able to help you:

1. Job location(s).
2. Housing Price Range.
3. What you consider "not a long commute."
4. Any preferences for urban, suburban, exurban, rural, etc. (Atlanta has it all!).
5. Any other pertinent information.

I am currently seaking employment, and I am trying to work eather at the airport or at one of the schools. So, not sure yet. I was hoping that once I have the best schools, I could apply for one of the job at that school or district. I can not afford private school at this time, and I would rather not have to drive for more than 20 mins to get to work. I would rather be in one of the suburbs not far from the city, or in the city it self.

What can you afford for a mortgage or rent? In town is very pricey in most areas.. particularly if the schools are good.

Yes, you really need to give your housing/rent price range...
