Why should you consider a new home in Cobb County….it’s the schools! Cobb County Schools are award-winning schools and scores are above the national average in many areas. In 2013 Cobb Schools scored higher than the 2013 State Averages for College and Career Readiness. Scores for Cobb County Schools on the 2013 College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) topped average scores for Georgia schools at all three levels – elementary, middle and high. The Georgia Department of Education today released the second year of ratings under the statewide accountability system, which measures on a 100-point scale the academic achievement and progress of individual schools and their school systems. The state revised several formulas of the 2013 CCRPI for greater accuracy and clarity and recalculated the 2012 baseline scores based on the updated calculations to allow for fair comparison.
Cobb elementary schools scored 81.3, a 1.1 point increase from the readjusted 2012 score and 3.3 points higher than the state average. Local middle schools rated 83.4, a 1.9 increase over 2012 and 8.4 points higher than the state. The CCRPI score for Cobb high schools decreased by six points to 77.7, yet remains 5.7 points greater than the statewide high school average. The combined district score for the Cobb County School District is 80.7.
