The schools are okay just about as good as there going to get. Teachers are for the most part involved in the students’ welfare and education. The police do their jobs and ensure that the community is safe, except in the investigation of murders and wrecks, but maybe because they do not have the right equipment to do so. Housing is affordable because it is a fairly small town. Everyone knows everyone, people tend to get stuck in this ghost town so there are lots of family and lifelong friends. The job opportunities are very low not many options and the options they do have are low income unless you have some high degree.

Bainbridge, GA is a small town where everyone knows everyone. When it comes to growing and advancing in life in career path its all about who you know very racial and split. Its hard to find a good paying job that will provide you with a good living for your family unless you are all ready locked in with people that own a business, family member or friend. You have to travel thirty minutes to a hour just to have a good job. And the all ready success business owners go out their way to stop other business from coming in to try to better the job market here. Bainbridge, GA officers harass you and are not about being their for the community for the people that are suppose to be roll model citizen. The only thing good that comes from this town is the education your kids get but after that please send your kids off to school to grow in the best way they can to blossom in a rose and not the wild flowers this town try to hold you down to be.
Friendly people. The hospital sucks, but the school system is good. Offers public school, but there is also a private school available. Has both good and bad parts of town. Mostly fast food options or local restaurants to eat at. An hour away from Tallahassee, Fl and Dothan, Al. 45 minutes away from Thomasville, Ga. Hour and a half away from Valdosta, Ga. Good local shops for clothing or healt products. Great churches with many activities to get involved in.
