Vikki,

The Council of Intown Neighborhoods is actively involved in supporting all the feeder schools that will send students to Grady High School. Think of it as a Super PTA... and they mean business. Grady High School is going through some major changes due to the Atlanta Public Schools High School Transformation. The Award winning Communication Magnate is being transformed into a small school there amongst others - They are called Small Learning Communities (SLC's)... As you can tell, I have kids in the public school system and am very actively involved. Can't go wrong in Ansley Park nor in many other area of Intown Atlanta.

-Cheers!

Lisa and Lee offer some solid advice.

I like the Sherwood Forest section of Ansley Park.

Morningside is a very good public elementary school, but the middle and high school schools that follow may merit some competition with your private school choices.

I think that Ansley is awesome for children, but keep 'em out of the streets and in the parks.

Vikki -
Ansley Park is an excellent "neighborhood" for families. It's proximity to Piedmont Park as well as the Midtown area make it a very in demand area for families who are looking for city living but the ability to live in an actual neighborhood.

The schools are certainly strong, but many of the people I know in the area do attend private schools. They have recently renovated Inman Middle (public) school and did a great job. I lived in the Virginia-Highlands area (same school district) and my daughter was in private school, but many of our neighbors went to Morningside Elementary or Inman Middle and loved it.

Current listing in the neighborhood range from the high $500s to $3 Million. There is one at 400,000 (on Monroe, the main road) and a foreclosure listed at 365, but also on Monroe, actually right next to the other!

Here's a link to those properties:

While we lived there my daughter went to a private school across from Piedmont Park which was also great! http://www.thechildrensschool.com/

Hope this helps!

Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like any more information.

Thanks!

Ansley Park is one of the premier neighborhoods in Atlanta. It is a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood with a combination of fine historic homes as well as some exquisite newer homes. There are a series of small public parks in the neighborhood as well as the private Ansley Golf Club. The public schools are among the best in the Atlanta Public Schools system and there are a wide variety of private schools nearby as well, if you prefer private education.

In terms of lifestyle for kids, it is great with the arts area nearby and Piedmont Park. In Ansley Park you are going to get a ton of diversity from families, older individuals, single professionals and such. For education, the elementary school is Morningside which is a good elementary school about 3 to 4 miles away. For middle and high school you can go to greatschools.net and see the scores for Inman Middle and Grady High School. I am a parent myself and I would have the tendency for this age range to lean towards private schools in all honesty. Please give me a call or email if you need any assistance.
