Ive been living in Conyers for over 6 years now. I moved here from NYC. I love the location how it is close to the city but then again it is not. When I first realized it did not have a bus system I was upset and wanted to know why. When I found out the reasons it made sense and it seems to work. It keeps the "riffraff" away. I noticed no one comes out here without a purpose. You rarely find or see homeless people or beggers on the side of the road like you do in the city. And the rare times you do see one your trying to figure out how did they get here?
The schools are great and ALWAYS make AYP! In the middle and high schools you got to put in more effort but are just as family oriented and welcoming as the elementry schools.
The average apartment will range from 499 to 750 for a 1 bedroom. Property tax is also lower in rockdale than the other metro counties. The downfall to that is rockdale doesnt have to many services to help you if your in need. For instance rental assistance if you fall behind on rent for whatever reason, bill assistance for the winter/summer weather, even grant money to purchase a home, rockdale dont have those benefits.
All in all its a nice quiet place to live and I love it!
