The Hechinger Report recently released the data for the graduation rates for nearly every school district in the U.S. The data, which draws from the 2013 graduating class, broke down the numbers past the typical statewide average.

We took a closer look at the graduation rates for the Atlanta area, and found the 10 school districts with the highest graduation rates:

  1. Decatur City School District – 93.9 percent
  2. Forsyth County School District – 89.5 percent
  3. Fayette County School District – 87.3 percent
  4. Carrollton City School District – 85.8 percent
  5. Coweta County School District – 78.6 percent
  6. Henry County School District – 78.5 percent
  7. Paulding County School District – 78.3 percent
  8. Cobb County School District – 76.5 percent
  9. Fulton County School District – 75.5 percent
  10. Gwinnett County School District – 72.78 percent

As Atlanta Agent previously reported, the quality of schools is one of the most important things consumers consider when buying a home.

    Our grands are in school in the Decatur City School District. I have nothing but good things to say about these schools. Parents are a very
    large part of their success also.

  • C R Kendall says:

    Now publish the SAT test results from each school and see what is really the best school.
