I’m a high school student that lives in Chamblee. I love the diversity here The. diversity has widened my perspective through experiences with people who are different from me. If I could improve anything in my city, I would change the districting for public schools. I am currently districted to a school that is farther from me than the high school that it closest to me. The school I am districted to also lacks in resources that would improve its academics.
People out here drive like maniacs and have bad road rage. The development is also too rapid to the point the city cant afford to build any more places. The neighborhoods are also poorly designed, house on top of house and no more trees/woods left so it is not a beautiful city any more. Aside from that, just a decent city to live and HUGE diversity...
