Let’s see. Did any Atlanta schools rank in Newsweek’s list of the top 1500 public high schools in the U.S. I see one. Just one. North Atlanta High School came in at 865th and I see Dekalb School of the Arts came in at 307th. Plus a few from suburban/satellite areas.
North Atlanta High is in upscale Buckhead. It hosts the magnet International Studies Program and the magnet Performance Arts program. “The latter, however, saw its last class during the 2007-2008 school year.”
Well, so much for that.
A 2009 article states Georgia’s graduation rate is 49th in the nation. The SAT scores from GA’s high school students in 2008 led it to being ranked 47th in the nation.
