Graduation Rates Rise at Cobb County Schools

Harrison-High-School-KennesawThe Georgia Department of Education recently released a report on academic success in Georgia, and the results show good news for Cobb County Schools. While Cobb County’s public schools were already well-regarded, the report shows that the Cobb graduation rate has risen to 77%, up one percentage point from the 2012 rate. In contrast, the graduation rate for the State of Georgia is 72 percent, an increase of 2% since last year.

The graduation rates for Cobb County’s top schools are as follows:

  1. Harrison High School in Kennesaw, west Cobb County- 96%
  2. Pope High School in east Cobb County- 92%
  3. Lassiter High School in Marietta, east Cobb County- 91%

In addition to excellent school facilities and teachers, Cobb County students benefit from their involved, educated parents. School board member David Banks points out that east Cobb residents are highly educated, and in many families, both parents are college-educated and hold master’s degrees or doctorates. It’s easy to see that both the residents and educators in this north Atlanta real estate market value education.
