How diverse? None of those cities are extremely diverse, youll have to head to places like NYC, Chicago, L.A., etc, to get extremely diverse demographics.

I guess it depends on one's definition of "diverse." If it's skin color, here's the breakdown of the 3 areas the OP mentioned according to the US Census:

Davidson County (Nashville): 65.5% white, 27.7% black, 7.1% Hispanic, 3% Asian

Jefferson County (Louisville): 75.5% white, 20% black, 2.6% Hispanic, 1.9% Asian

Wake County (Raleigh): 68.5% white, 20% black, 8% Hispanic, 4.5% Asian

Nashville also has the country's largest Kurdish community.

And yeah I know some of those add up to more than 100%. I guess some people choose more than one race when filling out Census forms.

As far as job growth, Raleigh and Nashville have the strongest among the 3. I don't know about schools, but I doubt that any of those three have really good public schools. I know that Nashville has some good schools, but it's hit or miss, and they tend to be in higher-income neighborhoods. The OP might want to investigate living in less expensive suburbs, but then that would mean less diversity.

Raleigh has great schools, but the place is booming so they have to build more and more new schools
