About Marietta Georgia
Marietta, Georgia spans 22 square miles, making it one of the largest of Atlanta's suburbs. Conversely, Marietta has one of the smallest school districts in metropolitan Atlanta. A handful of elementary schools are peppered throughout the town, with only one middle school and a single high school to serve its 60,000+ residents.
Despite the small number of schools, the quality of education in Marietta is very high. In fact, many of Marietta's schools (including Marietta High School and A.L. Buruss) are recognized as Georgia Schools of Excellence. For post-secondary education, Marietta is also home to two universities: Southern Polytechnic State University and Life University.
Marietta's employment opportunities are just as attractive as its educational options. Its publicly-owned utility system, the Lockheed-Martin manufacturing plant, and the over 100 Fortune 500 companies that call Marietta home all contribute greatly to the town's strong economic development. Equally as important are the independent businesses and retailers that are unique to the city, which help it retain its small-town feel even as it continues to grow.
Marietta is a town with strong ties to its rich and oftentimes violent history, but it is also reaching into the future. Housing in the city reflects this perfectly, with many historic homes, new town home developments, and downtown lofts comprising Marietta's housing options. This makes it an ideal community for all lifestyles, whether you're looking for a quiet place to retire, an affordable Atlanta alternative, or an idyllic locale to start a family.
