I would suggest that in the months you have before you move, you enroll your kids in English classes while you are still in Germany, so they have a basic working knowledge of the language before they move here. Kids learn more quickly than adults and they should be able to learn quite a bit by next Spring.

The Douglasville area school system is "ok", but hey, it's been voted a "redneck" city too by some author (he was being a smart-ass but it IS a bit rednecky in spots out there). Gwinett County schools are known for being the most culturally diverse as far as kids who speak other languages, and having the best foreign language courses (including English) - they are however, a bit overburdoned, and in the most congested suburban area in Atlanta, so you gain better schools for foreign born students, but also gain traffic.
