Five Gwinnett County schools named top Georgia high schools

This Gwinnett County school has one more reason to tout its student body of math whizzes.

Lawrenceville’s Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology ranked No. 1 on the list of the top 100 public high schools in Georgia by Niche.com, which ranks K-12 schools and colleges according to students test scores, surveys and other data. (This isn't the first time the school has been so-honored, or earned similar distinctions.)

Niche developed the ranking from the school districts’ latest U.S. Department of Education data, usually from 2013-14. The ranking also heavily incorporated alumni, parent and student surveys in many categories, as well as schools' self-reported data on test scores, college readiness and teacher quality.

GSMST's teachers were also the only ones in the state to make Niche's list of top 25 best public high schools teachers

The top 25 list of Georgia high schools includes six in Fulton County and three each in Cobb and DeKalb counties. Forsyth and Fayette counties and Buford and Decatur city schools also made the list with one school each.
