I am dead set on a move to northeast Mississippi next summer. We have lived in Desoto county for 15 years and have watched the memphis culture and crime infiltrate the area in the last five years. The Desoto co school district is on the downhill slide, the property values are (I feel) about to slide and it's just getting too big and populous. We want to get back to the small town feel.

What are some great small cities in northeast Mississippi to consider that would fit our parameters below:

Top rated school system (now, not ten years ago)
Business jobs within 20 miles
Extracurricular activities or youth sports
Less than 10k population
Low crime rate
Semi-rural housing (have to have at least 1 acre of land)

I have heard saltillo and booneville are worth considering, but aren't they highly populated now? What are some other charming little areas I'm overlooking?

Pontotoc and New Albany fit your criteria perfectly. See schooldigger.com for list of city and county schools in each area and their ranking in the state.
