Nine Fulton County high schools named best in Atlanta

Georgia’s wintry weather may have temporarily dominated news headlines, but nine high schools in the Fulton County School System are ready to take their place in the spotlight after being named to Atlanta Magazine’s annual list of “Best High Schools.” The magazine compared course offerings, facilities, extracurricular activities, awards and national test performance. Results were reported across a broad spectrum of categories to include general academics, math, science, language arts, performing/visual arts and sports.

Additionally, the magazine compiled a list of “Top All-Around” achievers, which are schools that made the cut in all categories. Of the 16 “All-Around” finalists, four were from Fulton County, while nine were private schools and three were other public schools. The following is a listing of the categories and the Fulton County high schools recognized. Roswell High School’s “Quidditch Club” – a game made popular by the Harry Potter movies – was profiled in the magazine in addition to other clubs and programs unique to Fulton County high schools. 

The January 2011 edition of Atlanta Magazine is on newsstands now.
