I'm looking for any info about schools in the Chickamauga area. We currently live in Chattanooga and pay dearly to attend private schools. For various reasons, we are thinking of moving to a smaller community, attending a public or reasonably priced private school, and simply slow down our pace of life.

Because this is such a big, life-changing decision, I've done hours of research. I have answers to all the grown-up questions: beautiful area, affordable housing, wide open spaces, friendly people, historical, etc. All seems wonderful.

However, my children are in middle and high school. I'm wondering if someone would share the reality of moving teenagers into this area? Are the existing students generally accepting and friendly? One child is science obsessed, but not competitive enough to care about sports. The other child has played lacrosse for years, but that sport is not offered in Chickamauga. In other schools, playing football is almost mandatory to fit in. Is that the case here? We are not football players..nor basketball...nor wrestling. Thank you for any insight. Thinking about switching my kids schools at these ages is keeping me up at night...even though the move would be for all the best reasons.
