I am considering moving to the Nashville area, my children are 14, and 6 and we are use to living in a very rural area. I am looking to rent an apartment but can not afford more than $700 a month. I am also looking to live in an area that has diversity, and good elementary and high-school's. It is very important to me to get into a neighborhood that is safe. I appreciate anyone who can give me poisitive insite.

It will be hard to get exactly what you're looking for. In your price range, I'd recommend Wilson County for rural areas, good schools, and affordability. However, I would say it's lacking in diversity. If you want diversity and good schools, it'll push your affordability. Something will have to give, so you'll have to decide what is most important to you. If you can get your children into magnet schools (no guarantees and you have to apply early... and while already residing here) then that will widen your search to other parts of Davidson County (where Nashville is). Unfortunately, around here rural usually means not very diverse.

Another suggestion might be Springfield in Robertson County. It's surrounded by extremely rural and affordable property but the city of Springfield itself has a growing diverse community. Cannot speak regarding the schools but pretty much anything outside of metro Nashville/Davidson scores higher in that regard. There is a lot of affordable property in Springfield as well and you might find somethiing that matches your needs that borders on the city/rural area.
