Forest Park is a DUMP with easily some of the worst schools in the country. Public schools in Athens also stink but NOTHING to the extent of what you would find in Forest Park which in in Clayton County or as many of us like to refer to it, metro Atlanta's armpit.

With all that DeKalb is going through, I'd definitely avoid it like the plague!!!

Speculation mounts that DeKalb school chief is leaving Comment Page 1 | Get Schooled

I agree w/ Jxu66 and spacelord75--You really have to look at your budget and the lifestyle you want. If you find your niche--like-minded people living the lifestyle you live--the school thing will fall into place. There are great schools in Milton and great schools in Morningside, but, man, these are two different places! You really need to walk around (and PLEASE test drive during rush hour) to make sure you've found the right place for you.

Nasir, what area of town will you be working in, what is your budget and home type preference (condo, apt, townhome, house etc.) and what would be considered an acceptable commute time?

We are also moving up to the Atlanta area in June, and i've been doing my research and Cherokee County (Woodstock) also has pretty good schools.

Oconee County has great schools and nice homes. If you are working from home, it is with a look. While some make the commute to Atlanta, it still takes over an hour to get to downtown without traffic. Its proximity to UGA makes it ideal--you can get most of what Atlanta has to offer without traffic and at much less cost, and if you do need to go to Atlanta it is not much worse of a drive than for anyone else in the suburbs.

"Best" is always subjective every time.

If you are a new poster to city Data, create your own thread with the details you want in a school / general area of metro Atlanta. Just read the top 2 posts to get more details on the guidelines of what to post.
