Shools are getting better everyday! Brand new middle school complex just opened this year on east side and it will one day have high school and elementary school also. In different areas, the Gilmer Cty students have been winning competitions and sporting events. Go to local newspaper, The Times-Courier, and read some of their success stories.
For a growing small town, it does very well to keep crime at bay. Both City of ellijay and city of East ellijay have their own police force and the county sheriff's department does well also. We have a brand new courthouse and retail development is growing.
Jobs here are mostly in the medical field, maybe some construction, but we are within communting distance of north Atlanta suburbs, so those would offer options. Best bet-go on newspaper and see what is being offered.
