Default PTC- Huddleston Elementary Vs. Braelinn Elementary?

Does anyone in Peachtree City have any experience with these 2 schools? We are looking to rent and then buy after we get to know the area a little more but we know that we will be moving somewhere in south Peachtree. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about either of these schools. Thanks.

My son is currently at Braelinn . He has been there for 3 years now and had nothing but the best teachers.He is the special needs class and a regular classroom as well so we have to deal with both groups .
The principal there Mrs. Bell is great to deal with .We have found it to be a very friendly, caring school for our son .It is one of the older established schools in Peachtree City . Many of the staff have been there several years and they work very well together. There is also alot of community support for the school. It has a lot of parental volunteers to help both in the classroom and other things outside the school.We have been very pleased .

Well, I went to both schools for a year several years back (1990-1991) for Braelinn and (1991-1992) for Huddleston. I would say Huddleston is (or at least it was when I was there) a little less "status" driven then Braelinn. More upper income neighborhoods tend to feed into Braelinn.

Yes...Braelinn and Kedron have traditionally been seen as the "richest" in an already affluent area.

I lived in PTC from 1988 - 1999. I attended Huddleston in 3rd Grade, Oak Grove in 4th and Braelinn in 5th, Whitewater 6 - 8th then McIntosh 9th - 11th.

I forgot exactly why I went to Huddleston 3rd and Oak Grove in 4th, I think they rezoned some of the areas and I happen to be on the Oak Grove side, we moved the next year though and I was in Braelinn district and Whitewater Middleschool which now kids go to Rising Star/Starr's Mill in that area I guess. They were being built when I was there but we moved again that firmly placed me in McIntosh Zone (Plantation Ridge subd).

Anyway sorry for the life story...

I guess the point I was making is as a child I never got the impression you mentioned. As for me, whatever school I was going to at the time was certainly to me, the best lol.

The school I actually liked the best for whatever reason was Whitewater, which kids in PTC area do not attend anymore. Why did I like it so much? Can't exactly say.. Maybe just the right time and right people.

The school I liked the least... Huddleston. Why? Again I cannot really say for certain only that is what memory tells me.

It could be the reason I like Huddleston the least is because it was a totally new place with totally new people and I was adjusting to that. In saying that maybe that is why I liked Whitewater the best, I stayed in 1 place the longest.

Well anyway, here's my really late reply to an old question.
