Here is another best list, this one ranking Georgia public high schools.
The source is Niche.com, formerly known as College Prowler, a site that produces rankings and reviews.
Niche also released a best college list this week , giving Emory the top slot in Georgia, followed by the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech.
Its 2015 "best" high school list closely aligns with similar rankings, so you will find the usual suspects leading the pack. Niche says it based its rankings on government and public data sets and its own surveys and research.
The list contains 100 schools. In looking at the top 20, Gwinnett and Fulton each have four schools; Cobb and Forsyth have two; DeKalb and Fayette have one. The cities of Decatur and Buford have their one local high school on the list. The remaining schools in the top 20 are in Columbus, Savannah, Athens and Augusta.
