Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on whether or not a neighborhood is good or bad. That is research that you would need to do on your own. There are a Federal Fair Housing Laws that prohibit that from happening. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. Should a real estate agent comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.
Determining how good or bad a school is, or how crime is, or anything else similar needs to be researched on your own.
I live in Mc Calla and love it here!! The McAdory school system is exceptional and safe and there are always sheriff deputy around. In our neighborhood of meadowridge we have a neighborhood watch program and all are very active in it. In fact, we have two law enforcement officers with units in their driveways that live here. I feel totally safe!!! Hope that helps you.
The local police department has a Crime Prevention Officer or a Community Liason Officer who can give you crime rates and tell you whether the numbers they are providing are high or low for the community.
Additionally, google "Megans Law" for a website address that will allow you to identify all the sex offenders around a specific address.
I have lived in the McCalla area for over 20 years. There haven't been any drive-by's, bank robberies or school lockdowns as long as I have been in this community. I only hear of the occasional breaking in a house or lawn equipment is stolen. If you are considering moving here, you won't be disappointed.
