Atlanta’s Top High Schools with the Best Teachers

by Chip Bell


Homebuyers want to live in a nice neighborhood, and when homebuyers have a child, “nice neighborhood” translates to “wherever the good schools are.” Thanks to Niche, providing that information to clients is now much easier for agents.

In its 2016 High Schools with the Best Teachers in America list, the online ranking and review site Niche compiled stats on parent and student satisfaction, academics, salary, absenteeism, the percentage of inexperienced faculty and the ratio of students to teachers, to determine which schools, metro by metro, employed the best teachers. (Niche’s full methodology)

In the Atlanta metro area, Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science & Technology topped Niche’s local list with an academics grade of “A+,” an average teacher salary of over $55,000 and an 18-to-one student-teacher ratio. Teachers at Gwinnett were also well reviewed by parents and students who were surveyed for the report, receiving a cumulative 4.3 out of 5 rating.

Gwinnett performed so well on Niche’s list, in fact, that it not only topped Atlanta’s list, but it found a spot at No. 20 on the site’s national rankings.
