    Paulding County is a good area for your kids to grow up in. There’s not a lot of night life so it’s a safe place and it’s relatively quiet. The schools in Paulding County are well equipped with teachers and staff that will help your child learn and grow. There are plenty of shopping areas for things you need, but not too many to where it’s crowded. Paulding County is very small town like to where you know where practically everything is, but also not because Paulding County is so vast that there are places where you wouldn’t know anything about that place.
    Paulding County is a great county to raise a family in. With excellent public schools and a low crime rate, enjoyability of this county is unmistakable. One thing I truly respect Paulding County for is how they handle weather situations. The state of Georgia is not provided with equipment to face snow and ice conditions. In recent years, the public school systems realized this in 2015, after having hundreds of students trapped at school during a giant snow storm. Now, the Paulding County School District take special precautions to ensure the safety of their students, which I believe shows what an excellent county this is to live in.
