The schools here are great. They are safe and the teachers really care for your success. My alma mater we had a lot of graduates go off to really great colleges and it's great that these schools are public.

Alpharetta has a lot of white and asian affluent people so not a lot of diversity. The houses here are expensive but it is worth it as the area not only has great schools but is comfortable. There are clean and safe parks situated everywhere.

My Grandmother lived in Alpharetta when I was growing up and I still have family there. It would take a lot of money to get me to live there. All the transplants have ruined it.
