    It is small and tight budgeted, the Lee county school system is a system of exiclents. Not diverse and things tend to run down. Lee county is near Albany which is one of the top 3 worst places to live in the US. My family moves alot because the neighbor's start to accumulate bad children and gang like activitie. Our biggest achievement is finally geting the train depo (which was run down in the center of down) got restored after years.

    Pretty decent area. The undercover racism is my only issue. You work hard to have family in better surrounding and kids getting quality education, however, you have some people that you can never win with.
