Equity in Education

Atlanta School Quality Data Map

We know there’s a lot of data out there on Atlanta’s public schools but even for seasoned education professionals it can be difficult to navigate, so we wanted to make it just a little bit easier for parents to know the quality of their child’s school.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Our data tool looks at total school enrollment and subgroup data; achievement scores (reading and math proficiency) by subgroup; high school graduation rates by subgroup; and disciplinary infraction data by subgroup. 

Primary data sources include Georgia Milestones 2021-2022 Statewide Scores (GaDOE) and Governor’s Office of Student Achievement K-12 Discipline Dashboard (GOSA). Achievement data for 2023 will be updated by Summer 2024. 

  • For parents/caregivers: Find a school based on equitable measures.
  • For educators: See where your school ranks.
  • For researchers/media: Get the full picture and key takeaways on how APS is performing when it comes to equity.
  • For voters: Find your cluster and hold your APS board representative accountable.

Elected officials play a significant role in determining the quality of our schools. We want voters to be informed on who is responsible for making decisions on the quality of their schools.
