Hi Again,
Thanks everyone for your terrific feedback. Which area has more jewish people, Alpharetta or Roswell? Also, which schools are better, Alpharetta or Roswell? Any information would be so helpful! Thanks!

To help answer your original question, check this thread:

Jewish Subdivisions in Alpharetta

From the research we did when deciding on what area of GA we wanted to move to, Alpharetta schools were better than Roswell.

However, I have to ask - did you read the replys to your original thread? You really, really, need to know where your husband is going to work before making a decision where you're going to live. If he works in the city, and you live in Roswell or Alpharetta, be prepared for up to 2 hour commutes (each way) in gut-wrenching traffic.

As was stated in the other thread, Sandy Springs and Dunwoody both have sizeable jewish populations and are close to Marta stations (if he works downtown).

we are also looking at both of those areas and east cobb...just because a school looks good on paper and is supposed to be *better than another or the best* doesn't mean that it will be the best for your child..each school can have its own strenghts and weaknesses...one may better suit your childs learning style or individuality and that school may not be touted as *the best* so Alpharetta schools may be *better* but may not be best for you and your children...too many people rely just on the numbers...a visit to the school is much much more important..we will be touring 12 schools Sometimes schools that have the highest test scores are way too competitive and rigid (we currently go to one in NC...it wasn't built here when we moved so we couldn't tour obviously) When I graduated high school we were #1 in the country but the school was ultra competitive and not a good fit for me...my daughter is in K and is a 5th gradwe reader and the talent and development teacher works with her (they usually don't allow this in k but made a special allowence for her) We don't want a competitive school but one that fosters creativity and imagination which many schools don't which is why we'll be touring so many...sorry! I'm very passonate about education and nothing drives me more crazy then when people go by numbers to say their school is the best I'm typing one handed (nursing) so sorry for the punctuation and misspells
