Greater Atlanta’s best school districts: the latest rankings

by Chip Bell


Buford City Schools is the best school district in Greater Atlanta, according to educational rankings and review site Niche. Real estate agents should take note.

Evaluating on criteria including academics, teacher performance, available resources and the quality of the schools’ facilities (among others), as well as parent and student survey results collected by Niche, the rating site counted down the top school districts in Greater Atlanta, and found a pattern of excellence among the area’s districts – particularly in Buford City.

The top 10 districts in Atlanta all received academic and teacher grades at or above an A-, while resource and facilities grades trailed slightly, with no district scoring below a B.

As one of the single-most important determining factors for families looking to change areas, Niche’s district evaluations provide a unique weapon for an agent’s sales artillery – and an opportunity to further demonstrate their authority as a neighborhood expert.
