For 2008 the Marietta city schools now offer its choice academies program at all seven of its seven elementary schools. That means Marietta City residents may now send their child to their zoned school or ANY of the outstanding elementary schools in the district. Each elementary facility offers a specific learning program so parents can choose the school that best fits their childâ€™s skills and interest. This would be an excellent option if you love a certain house or neighborhood, but prefer the program at a different Marietta elementary school.
Marietta City Schools continues to be a shining star in COBB County educational system:
â€¢ They been listed among Newsweekâ€™s â€œTop U.S. School Systemsâ€ for several years in a row
â€¢ The 2008 Georgia State Teacher of the Year is from MCS
â€¢ Marietta High School is consistently named in among top 5% of all US high schools
All of MCS met state progress goals in 2007 (only 29% of all Georgia school districts accomplished this goal)
So donâ€™tâ€™ worry about the schools in Marietta. It is now a non-factor!

While I agree with Cathy that you should througly research an area so that you make an informed decision, I will tell you that living within the Marietta city limits are great. I have lived here for 16 years. There have been several changes in the school system and now Marietta residence have the choice as to which school in the elementary level they want their children to attend. Additionally, Marietta High School has the IB program and many a parent actually pay for their children to attend this school from outside the area. The acutal living in Marietta is terriffic. Location to downtown Atlanta, Hartsfield, and the arteries make this area very appealing. The square of Marietta is vibrant with people working, dining, shopping, and strolling the area. Let me show you why I love it here starting with the free concerts on the square!
As far as inside city limits, check to see how much more your taxes are. Most times you pay both county and city taxes.
Ask the agent that is representing. In the event you don't have an agent to look out for your best interest, call me. It doesn't cost you as a buyer anything to have representation in Georgia.
Best of luck, Cathy 404-219-6488. http://www.cathypinkston.com
