Guess again- there are plenty of counties and cities that have lower tax rates than East Cobb. Alpharetta isn't one of them, but that doesn't make your statement any more valid.

BTW- it's "genius", not "genious", and I'll take that as a compliment.

Alpharetta is a really nice area, with many middle and high income residents, and it's a mecca for business in the area. Just look at the companies who have an office or HQ in Alpharetta. I chose to live in Cobb even though my company's office is in Alpharetta, but there were a few reasons for that decision
Shhh.....you're talking too logically!!!

GF72,

I would also like to thank you for the detailed information you provided above. I don't suppose you could provide further insight into the elementary schools that feed into Walton? I am relocating to East Cobb later this summer with two little ones. Although they are still a couple of years away from elementary school, I am having difficulty deciding between Mt. Bethel, Murdock, East Side, Sope Creek, Tritt and Timber Ridge.

And yes, I have read all the reviews on greatschools.com.
Thanks!a

ok i mean alpheratta is ok, its clean and everything, but its not closer to atlanta, cheap houses dont mean everything, i mean you got to see the crime rates, how enviromentally freindly it is, and their are towns of bussiness's hq in cobb, home depot is in cobb, and i know all you go to home depot at least once.overall cobb is better though even though alpharetta is an ok place to live in, even though cobb schools are better and closer to atlanta.

If you look at the test scores for these schools they are almost identical. What are you basing your criteria on? In fact both Timber Ridge and Murdock have smaller class sizes than both Sope Creek (which is overcrowded) and Mt Bethel.

Johns Creek and Alpharetta are # 1 in everything...schools, malls, parks, houses, and country clubs. That is why everyone is moving there.

Sounds like it might soon be #1 in traffic congestion, if it isn't already.

Also #1 in stuck up snobs. Are most people from JC and Alpharetta from up north, because it seems that way. I haven't found a lot of southern hospitality in that area. Seems like 80% transplants.

I smell trolling.

No area in Atlanta is number one at everything, sounds too much like cheerleading babbling to me.
