We are relocating to the area and have narrowed the search to Roswell/Alpharetta for schools and commute. We are deciding between two different homes - one goes to Elkins Pointe/Roswell and the other goes to Northwestern/Milton. I have a 7th grader and an 8th grader - both take Honors/Gifted track. Any thoughts/experiences on these two school options would be appreciated....Academics/Sports/Administrators and Staff/Culture,.....

I have friends zoned for Sweet Apple, Elkins and N. Roswell. They love Sweet Apple and fear Elkins and are talking about changing to private school when it comes time for that- 2 more years. N. Roswell is really good from what I hear.

I also have a friend with 2 daughters- one now at N. Roswell and the other still at Elkins. She says it is "okay" - I know this isn't the best opinion- but thought I would throw it out there!

Good Luck!

Middle schools do not tend to do very well overall in this location, but the end product of Roswell High School and Milton High School is incredible. Milton High School is a beautiful school. Northwestern is across the street from Milton on the same campus which may be nice for you when one is still in Northwestern, while the other is in Milton.

My youngest attended Northwestern for one year, now both of my children are at Milton.The staff is terrific, at least those who have taught my kids, both of whom are in honors and AP classes. Roswell has always been a sports powerhouse, especially in football, but I think this will be the year the dynasty swings over to the Milton side . It's a great rivalry anyway. Middle school students can try out for the high school "feeder teams" in many of the Milton sports. They have Jr Eagle basketball, football, baseball and lacrosse that I know of. Northwestern also has some of it's own sports teams.
