Default Best places to live in Georgia with small children

My husband works for Coca-Cola and is being transferred to Atlanta. We are searching for the best school districts and trying to pinpoint areas to start visiting in March over spring break. Our priority is to find the best schools and then find a home in that area. Our price range is $300< and we will consider the commute accordingly. We have young elementary age children that love being involved in sports and being outside. We would love to have an over-sized lot or acreage. Currently we live in an acreage subdivision that offers great schools, outstanding sports programs and is a small thriving community. Something comprable would be lovely. Do you have any suggestions as to areas? We hear a lot about East Cobb, and the cities of Dunwoody, Roswell, Aopharetta, Suwanee and Duluth keep coming round. Any help would be appreciated!

You can rent housing for $1300 or less in most of those communities, as long as you can live with a 3/2 home instead of a mini-mansion. Suwanee and Lawrenceville have great schools. Can say about Duluth or Berkley Lakes.
You're about an hour's drive to the city from say Suwanee. 10 min less from Duluth. Alpharetta seems to get a lot of transplants, but if you want quiet streets and good schools you need to look further out.

I'm sorry. I misspoke. I put in the wrong budget for housing. Our budget is $500>. I was looking at Timber Ridge Elementary, any middle school it feeds into and then Pope or Lassiter High in East Cobb. Would you recommend another county for excellent schools as a second option? We do not want to go too far north because of the commute into town.

Geez $500 won't hardly get you into a mobile home and it won't be in the best school district! You need to go a bit higher - $750-950 for any decent community.

$500 is a starting point for us, so if you can suggest communities within a good school district, that would be great. Our first area to visit is the area around Timber Ridge Elementary that feeds into Pope or Lassiter, not Walton.

Hey GA duchman- Valdosta has many places in the $400-$600 range to rent. Does that mean that the schools suck there too?

Hey - why don't you read the subject before interjecting a comment?
