I know many of you take issue with calling Decatur a “suburb” of Atlanta, but here ya go anyway!
Niche, a website that specializes in ranking cities, towns, schools, etc, has ranked Decatur the #1 suburb in the state for 2015.
Milton, Watkinsville, Johns Creek and Duluth round out the Top 5. According to Niche, areas classified as cities and towns are excluded from the ranker.
You can check out Niche’s methodology for the ranking HERE. The largest weighted items that determine the rank include, “Things to Do”, “Commute Time”, and Education.
Back in January, Niche ranked DHS one of the best high schools in the state.
