Hi,

My family will be moving from CT to Newnan Ga. I have been told to avoid homes in the Newnan High district by a handful of locals.They told me to focus on the Northgate High School district. I've studied the stats on three different web sites and Newnan doesn't look so bad. Does anyone have any insight? Thanks!

IMO they probably mean due to the socio-economics. Northgate is a much more upscale area. It depends on what you are looking for in a school. Newnan High is more real life. Northgate is more upper middle class.

Newnan gets a bad rap for drawing a lot of kids from the ghetto, but if your kids get put in advanced classes, Newnan High will be wonderful. The school itself has a wide variety of kids so your kids will definitely find a group that they can hang out with. I'm a student there and I really like it. East Coweta and Northgate are good schools too though. Any High School would be a good choice.

Default The Ghetto?

ptcgirl and Tdiddy0027 thanks so much for the replies. I was starting to wonder if I would get any I'm surprised to hear that East Coweta is also a good choice, I was warned to steer clear of it. This is why I rely heavily on personal oppinions as well as researching the stats.

Your comments have been very helpful, thank you. By the way, what is meant is meant by "the ghetto" in Newnan? I hate to sound naive but I didn't see any type of "inner city" when we were there?

I am a mom of four Newnan High students and I personally think it's a great school! They have a lot of activities to choose from and lots of clubs to join. I think your family will enjoy it!
