The Cheri Riley Group, Atlanta's top real estate luxury group, is committed to bringing you a wide variety of resources and information that will assist you in your next decision to buy a home. We've provided you with several posts about local area schools and their many accomplishments, including Sarah Smith Elementary, Walton High School, and many more. Today we're pleased to bring you information via SchoolDigger.com, a valuable website that allows you to compare schools, districts, and cities and perform customized searches utilizing criteria that are important to you and your family.

One search that we found to be particularly useful was a comprehensive list of the top elementary schools throughout the state of Georgia. Utilizing scores from the 2008 - 2009 Criterion Referenced Competency Test, or CRCT, in English Language Arts and Math, SchoolDigger provided us with detailed information, including student teacher ratios, average CRCT scores, and changes from the previous year. The search can be modified to look at additional information, such as Reading CRCT scores.

Many of the schools listed within the top ten ranking of elementary schools in Georgia based on ELA/Math CRCT scores are areas in which we have a wide variety of fine luxury homes. Cobb County Schools, along with Atlanta Public Schools, were some of the schools recognized for their high achievements. Mount Bethel Elementary in Marietta, Timber Ridge Elementary, also in Marietta, and Jackson Elementary, in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood, ranked second, fourth, and tenth on the list, respectively.

Please note that these rankings do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Cheri Riley Group. We suggest utilizing sites such as SchoolDigger, along with other methods, such as visiting prospective schools, meeting with teachers, and so on, when making an important decision such as purchasing a home and choosing a school for your child.
