I am transitioning a move from California to Georgia and am wanting to move into a safe and diverse neighborhood but also want to be located in a top school district for my son. Education is number 1 for me and I want to ensure my son is not only getting a great education but also being treated fairly. I hate to have to include race but I must be realistic. Being a single black mother, I think about our safety anywhere we go. And although I do not see color and generally do not feel uncomfortable with being in an area with majority whites, blacks or any other race for that matter but coming from another state, I also don’t know which areas would be considered safe for blacks that is also in a great surrounding and great school district. I am considering Cobb County. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Two very important things:

1) What is your budget for housing? (...Rental or purchase?)

2) Where (in what zip code) will you be commuting to and from for work everyday?

...These two factors will go a long way in determining where you should look for housing.

Great school districts with large amounts of diversity in safe areas can be found in almost all directions of the Atlanta metropolitan region. Knowing what your budget for housing is and knowing where you will be commuting to and from for work each day will help you narrow down where exactly to look.
