Hello, one of the top Zip codes around Suburban Atlanta for families is in Alpharetta (30004, 30009), Milton (30009)/Crabapple area.
Very High end neighborhoods, and one the Top High Schools and MS is right here. Milton HS, and Northwestern MS are one of the top 3 in the State. Look into this area. You won't regret it.
I researched 6 years before relocating here from another State. Buckhead is excellent, BUT is not a "Family" high end Suburban area. It's more for Singles, couples W/O children, and/or young business people.
Alpharetta/Milton/Crabapple area on the other hand is a very high end area (homes varies from
$ 450's up to 5 Million)., tons of gated communities w/ Pool/Tennis/Clubhouse, City Parks, NorthPoint Mall is minutes away, movie theaters, restaurants, Shopping, all with less than 5min drive! And of course, the schools in here are Excellent. One of my children is doing a Pre Medicine program at Milton HS...which I couldn't find anywhere else.
Hope I have helped.
There is a lot more you need to know about schools and neighborhoods, and I suggest you do the fine tuned research using the GA Department of Education website for more info and accurate stats. Understand that making a sound investment in a home is another thing altogether - there are plenty of areas in every county that will perform very poorly over time if you buy the wrong home. In some cases, your preferred price range for a home may limit you from certain school districts - and must be factored into the analysis.
I would avoid taking school recommendations from agents because it is a very personal decision that has to be right for your family and your children. I suggest you talk to someone who is not trying to push an area or school on you without finding out a lot more about what you want and need first - and ideally someone who had been in Atlanta at least 15 years or more years, or an Atlanta native.
Reach out to me and I would be happy to discuss your plans and give you some sound sources for more information based on your individual needs.

As a PA transplant myself, I can help you in assessing which part of Atlanta my suit you best and align you with the right realtors who can find you the best values in the requisite cities/counties that make the most sense for you and your family. I made this move myself and there are things I learned after the fact that I wish I had known before we moved.
Let me know if I can assist you. Good luck with your move south.
