Alpharetta Real Estate: North Fulton Schools Dominate in State SAT Scores

Alpharetta school test scoresWhen home buyers are looking for that perfect home for sale in Alpharetta, it’s no secret that the area’s excellent schools (part of the Fulton County School System) are one of its biggest draws for families with children. According to the Georgia Department of Education, Fulton County Schools had the second-highest overall SAT scores in the state, thanks in large part to the performance of North Fulton students.

Five of North Fulton County’s high schools ranked in the top 15 nationwide for average SAT scores, with the average scores for Alpharetta and Roswell exceeding 1600. Fulton County students’ scores decreased slightly from last year (13 points), yet still exceeded both the state and national average SAT scores. Fulton County Schools superintendent Robert Avossa commented,

Although our overall scores dipped this year, I’m not discouraged- far from it…Fulton has the third largest number of test-takers in Georgia, yet we continue to keep our district averages the highest in metro Atlanta.
