The Social Circle City district in Walton County is the most improved school district in Metro Atlanta, according to a new analysis from Trulia.

In a partnership with SchoolDigger.com, Trulia analyzed test scores from the past five years to find which local school districts vaulted the most in regional rankings (the study focused on districts with three or more schools and more than 1,000 students).

By those measurements, Social Circle City came out on top. From 2011 to 2015, the district rose 10 spots in local district rankings, climbing from 27 to 17. Haralson County came in at a close second, rising 9 spots all the way to No. 22.
