Earlier this school year, Niche.com announced its overall assessments of school systems across the nation, with Carrollton City Schools ranking as the eighth best public school district in Georgia. However, a deeper look at the organization’s research also shows its review of districts in six specific categories, including which schools have the best teachers – a known component reflecting educational quality. Carrollton City Schools posted strong results in this segment, earning a rating of ninth best statewide.
To determine the Best Teachers ranking, Niche reviews a variety of metrics to establish its ranking outcome. Thirty percent is based on state assessment proficiency and survey responses on academics from students and parents. Parent/student Niche general surveys on teachers make up 25 percent of the score, followed by teacher absenteeism at 15 percent, teacher salary index at 10 percent, and the percentage of first/second-year teachers at 10 percent. The last considerations are average teacher salary and the student-teacher ratio at 5 percent each.
"Quality teachers are essential to our mission to provide an exceptional experience and education at Carrollton City Schools,” said Dr. Mark Albertus, superintendent.
A former Carrollton High School student wrote a review of the school on the Niche website and said, “All of my years in the system have been great. The teachers seem to be involved in the education of their students and have a willingness to help. The school is very diverse, and I feel as though all the students are respected.”
According to its website, Carrollton City Schools ranks second in Georgia for Most Diverse Districts, seventh for Best Places to Teach, ninth for Best Teachers, and fourteenth for Safest School Districts and Best for Athletes. Carrollton City Schools was compared to 182 public school systems across Georgia.
