Who had Atlanta Public Schools' top CCRPI averages?

These elementary schools all boast typical or high growth since 2013

Atlanta Public Schools, along with various other systems, has its share of schools that could fall under state control under a proposal that Georgia voters will consider on this November's ballot. But there are many success stories in the district, too. The 10 elementary schools shown below are examples of the district's top performers based on their three-year averages on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), a kind of school report card authored by the Georgia Department of Education.

Schools that earned an "F" rating on the CCRPI (below 60) for a minimum of three consecutive years are eligible for state takeover under Gov. Deal's proposal.
