In 2016, Atlanta Public Schools launched a turnaround effort to improve its worst-performing schools. Since then, the district has ushered in big changes.
It hired charter school operators to run and staff Carver, Price, Thomasville Heights and Woodson Park. Fain Elementary merged with Towns Elementary this year to create the new Harper-Archer Elementary School.
Harper-Archer Middle School is closed.
The state works with schools on the list to help them improve.
Fulton County Schools has four on this year’s list:
College Park Elementary, Independence High School, McClarin High School and Skyview High School.
