Earlier this academic year, Niche.com, a platform for school assessments, released rankings of school systems in the state. Carrollton City Schools ranked as the eighth-best public school district in Georgia — marking a significant improvement from last year when the district held the 11th spot.
The rankings also showcased the performance of individual schools within the district.
Carrollton Elementary School claimed the 187th position out of 1196 schools, securing a spot in the top 15 percent. Carrollton Upper Elementary School and Carrollton Junior High School followed suit, ranking 158th and 84th in their respective categories. Carrollton High School stood out, securing the 64th position out of 435 schools, placing it in the top 14 percent.
Adding to the accolades, the recently released U.S. News rankings, which focus on the best elementary and middle schools, further emphasized the excellence of CCS.
CES and CUES both took positions in the top 20 percent, securing the 263rd and 254th spots out of 1268 schools, respectively. CJHS further solidified the district’s standing, achieving the 128th position out of 512 schools, placing it in the top 25 percent.
CCS Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus said the rankings from both Niche.com and U.S. News highlights the district’s commitment to creating an environment that supports academic achievement and personal growth.
“It is our commitment at CCS is to provide a top-tier education for our students,” said Albertus. “These rankings are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, teachers, and staff.”
