Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Tucker all have some good schools.
But, why commute for 45 soul sucking minutes in our snarling town?
Why not Midtown?
Why not Ansley Park, Morningside or Virginia Highland?
Why not Inman Park or Candler Park?

Feel free to contact me anytime if I can help you.
Atlanta, Dunwoody, what I hear about the answers here are good. Did you re-locate from somehwere else? I am a Sr Mortgage Consultant for the last 17 years. What makes me different, we are a lender. We make all decision with in house Underwriting, closing, wiring. That makes buyers and realtors, both the buyer and listing agents happy to know a pre-approval is good with a direct endorsement lender.
I am here to assist you with any answers you may need. I would be honored to assist you with your mortgage needs, feel free to contact me.

I am Sharon Pierce with Keller Williams Atlanta Perimeter. I am a resident of the Dunwoody area and have lived here since 1971. We have some of the top rated schools in the State. Dunwoody is conveniently located within 45 minutes of midtown, 20-25 minutes to Buckhead and just minutes from Perimeter Mall. The Mall has anchor stores, such as: Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Dillards and Macys. You are also minutes from great Restaurants. I would love to share more about the area with you. Please feel free to contact me.

I agree with several of the agents who have answered previoulsy. Price and house features (primarily size and number of bedrooms and bathrooms) will help us narrow down the searh area.
I can tell you that I grew up in the Buckhead area and now live in Decatur. The Decaur area has great schools and the price point is fantastic when you compare it to some of the other areas.
I would love to get more information from you about house preferences, time frame etc. I can also recommend several lenders if you need that as well.
Feel free to call me on my cell at 404-401-1460. You can search my site as well at http://www.amyweeks.com.

Price will definitely have an impact. East Cobb, Dunwoody and Decatur have the best schools closest to Midtown and of those, East Cobb definitely has a higher percentage of top schools. These areas do vary quite a bit in terms of age, home styles, lifestyles, etc.
The age of your children would also impact which areas may be the best fit. You can visit http://www.h2realty.com/metro-atlanta-schools/ to see school rankings by elementary, middle and high schools as well as rankings of the entire feeder system.
We provide a list of all homes currently available in each area so you can quickly get a feel for what you can expect in each school district.
If we can be of assistance, don't hesitate to contact me.
