Hi, all! We're looking at moving back to GA sometime in the next year or so, and I'm scouting out locations. We lived in Decatur for 9 years and loved it but are looking at probably being OTP just to have a less expensive lifestyle. We won't be contending with a commute, so we are pretty flexible in finding where to land. The most important thing is finding a school (middle school and then a high school for later) that has strong academics but is also a strong community that supports the development of the whole child as a person, teaching about individual responsibility as well as commitment to others. And I very much want it to have diversity representative of the real world and an atmosphere of tolerance and acceptance. I'd love to find a public school (charter or not) that fits this mold, but am also open to private options that aren't crazy expensive. We want to find a location that has a lower cost of living (housing prices and property taxes) than city of Atlanta, city of Decatur, etc. Ideally we'd like to be within an hour or two of Atlanta. Thanks for any and all suggestions of specific schools or areas!
Good luck to you!!!
Good luck to you!!!
