New Cobb County homes offer a great place to live just north of Atlanta and the area continues to provide one of metro Atlanta’s best performing school districts. Earlier this year Gov. Nathan Deal’s office released their list of Annual Statewide Accountability Awards for Georgia’s top student achievement results per county and school. Among the 187 public schools named, nearly two-dozen awards (23) combined were given to Cobb County and Marietta City Schools.
How These Schools Earned It
The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) results are based on the Georgia’s College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCPRI) data compiled over the last three years to determine awards for the Greatest Gains and Highest Performing schools. The greatest gainers were ranked on their three-year average progress score, while the highest performing schools were those ranked in at least the 93rd percentile for their three-year earned achievement score. Learn more details about how the scores are calculated.
Cobb County & Marietta’s Top Schools
Per the AJC, a total of 80 schools in metro Atlanta’s school districts made the Governor’s list. Cobb County tied with Fulton or very close behind if you like. The Cobb County School District had 21 schools on the list and Marietta City Schools had 2. Because we’re local homebuilders in metro Atlanta, we are proud of all them but our offices are in Marietta so we are a little more partial to the Cobb County/ Marietta City Schools. Here are the schools and the categories in which they excelled.
