Atlanta: Northern suburban submarkets boast heaviest concentration of high-ranked schools

Highly ranking public schools are congregated in the northern submarkets of the Atlanta MSA.

March 16, 2020
  • North Fulton has the best average ranking, while the Northeast supports the most with an impressive 105 high-ranked school.
  • As expected, CBD does not host many public schools in the Atlanta MSA, but Buckhead still competes with above average scores.
  • Downtown does not contain any high-ranked schools, and accordingly has the lowest average ranking of the submarkets.
  • North Fulton, Northeast, and Northwest submarkets lead the pack in both the share of high ranked schools and in average ranking.
