Eight of Fulton County’s public schools improved enough to move off of Georgia’s lowest-performing list.
The schools are among 61 in the state no longer considered “priority” or “focus” schools, the Georgia Department of Education announced Tuesday. They got on the list with low student scores on state standardized tests and, in some cases, low graduation rates.
The eight improved Fulton County Schools, and their previous place on the list, are:
Fulton County Banneker High School -- Priority
Fulton County Bethune Elementary School -- Focus
Fulton County Creekside High School -- Priority
Fulton County Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary-- Focus
Fulton County Hapeville Charter Career Academy -- Priority
Fulton County Hapeville Charter Middle School -- Focus
Fulton County Lee Elementary School -- Focus
Fulton County Tri-Cities High School -- Priority
