Can I ask if you have to specifically move to Como? I don't want to say real bad things about the city, but Oxford (Lafayette co.) or Senatobia (Tate county) would be better bets to me- even Batesville which is also in Panola county. Please correct me f I am wrong but it is in the North Panola school district which is among the worst in the state- I think its even been taken over by the state (if not its still a Level 1 and not to deseriable). If you don't mind private schools, their is Magnolia Heights in Senatobia and North Delta in Batesville which would be better options.

So if schools are a concern, that will be a problem. As far as jobs go, I am not sure what fields y'all are in but you would probably have to look outside the city for that for a good job. As far as racial tensions, I can just say the city is 75/25 black to white so take from that what you would like.

I wish these small towns would come back and more people would move to them (instead of the suburbs), and you happily raise a family in Como, but you just need to look at the schools and jobs especially and see what is right for you. If living in the country is what you would like, you could get land fairly cheap though.

Como is a very small town. It does have beautiful old homes and a few restaurants that are packed on the weekends. There are really no job opportunities in Como but there are in Batesville (a little to the south) or Senatobia (a little to the north). Like the other poster stated, the public school system is in trouble.
