It was the second best school in the state, behind Columbus High School in Muscogee County. Two other DeKalb County Schools made the list — Chamblee Charter High School and DeKalb Early College Academy.
DeKalb School of the Arts was No. 89 on the list of best schools in the country. No Georgia school was in the country’s 50 best schools.
“Our three recognized campuses — DeKalb Schools of the Arts, Chamblee Charter High School and DeKalb Early College Academy — are wonderful examples of how the DeKalb County School District continues to raise the bar on achievement, and build trust in the community,” DeKalb County School District Superintendent Steve Green said.
The rankings are based on student performance on state tests, graduation rates and how many students take AP exams and pass at least one.
More than 60 Georgia high schools are ranked among the best in the country under the U.S. News & World Report 2017 Best High Schools list.
