I am considering a job in Statesboro. I think my children would be better off in schools in suburban Savannah. Any thoughts on where to live between the two cities to make a commute tolerable for my wife and kids as well as me?
Is it even reasonable? Does western Savannah have much in the way of options?

Bulloch County schools are fine. The Brooklet school district on the East side of Statesboro is top notch. Real Estate and taxes are cheaper...I can't think of a reason to live in Savannah if you're working in Statesboro. Enjoy the small town living in the 'Boro and do your shopping/visiting in Savannah. I wish I had done that years ago instead of leaving Statesboro for Savannah...

Tis true. Schools in Bulloch County are very good. If you insist upon living closer to Savannah, however, Effingham County schools are also very good.

Bulloch County Schools are much better than Chatham County Schools. Facilities are also much better. Schools are about the only thing that Bulloch County funds very well.

Also, there's no reason to live in Savannah if you work in Statesboro. Statesboro is a nice city for its size and has far less crime. It's probably a much better place to raise a family. I work in Chatham County now (can't get specific with my job), but I plan to transfer to Bulloch County as soon as I can.

I agree with the consensus. Statesboro IMO is a gem of a college town. Plant your roots there.
