I think you should visit the following schools. Unfortunately, you don't have much time, because most schools won't give tours and aren't very accessible during the CRCT. You will probably have to wait until May.

Renfroe Middle School (Decatur schools) great schools score 8 Decatur High
Henderson Middle School (DeKalb) score 8 Lakeside
Dickerson Middle School (Cobb) score 10 Walton
Autrey Mill Middle School (Fulton) score 10 Northview
Inman Middle school (Atlanta) score 9 Grady High (great magnet programs there)

Inman, Henderson, and Renfroe are all closer to where you live now than the other two. Does diversity concern you? If so, you should to to Gaoas.org - scholarships student resources Resources and Information. This website is for sale! and study each schools report cards.

Heron Bay community in southern henry county is wonderful. check them out at heronbayinfo dot com ------- ------ ALSO---
I'll tell u right now that there is a little independent, black-owned and black teachers school a few minutes from Fairburn in College Park called Blackstone Academy. They wear uniforms and they do a prayer in the morning and in the afternoon which is wonderful. The owners REALLY DO CARE about the kids (u don't find this anywhere). It is a community service-based school that goes from Pre-K to 12th grade!!! And Pre-K is straight school, not day care. my son went in at 2 years of age and went to school all day from 8 to 3 with after school care until 5pm. What's good though is that ll your kids can be in the same school. It is very small, yes, the whole school is only about 30 students. But by the time they get out of there, students sometimes have scholarships to university because of all the community service hours they have built up through the years. one student just graduated to go to Morehouse! You can be any color and any religion to go there (i'm hispanic) but practically all students are african-american. there were even some german mixed students going there at one point. it is wonderful to see people of color owning and teaching in their own schools. i live a little farther away from the school, but i have several friends that live right there in Fairburn and like that area. email me if you need the school's number. There's much more to the school's history which u can find out by speaking to Sister Anita or Brother Kenneth. Also, if you know of any RN's or medical personnel, point them to {moderator removed}: NO personal business links or phone numbers!
