What is the best school in Clayton County, GA?
I'm moving there this summer from Maryland and was wondering which school to choose since they all kind of bad. Also, what does it mean to lose accreditation?

You should move this to the Atlanta board. There are several threads on Clayton county losing, and recently, regaining accreditation. Personally, after the whole debacle, I'd NEVER move there.

I'm looking for a public high school in Clayton. I haven't been there to visit the schools, so I don't know how they are like. I have schools like Jonesboro and Morrow in mind, but I would like some advice. Thanks.

You can get the stats and scores on Schooldigger.com -- Search and compare elementary, middle, and high schools. or here SchoolMatters - Home (http://www.schoolmatters.com/ - broken link) or to talk to people that have kids in the area, you really should go to the Atlanta forum as Anadyr suggested: http://www.city-data.com/forum/atlanta/

Not all that far away are Fayette Co. schools, where I've done some consulting work, and those are generally well regarded for the area.

I graduated out of Clayton there are traditional high Schools there:

Jonesboro (The Best many national awards in the top 100 school in the US)
Lovejoy (Great Sports/ROTC)
Riverdale (Great Technology and Life science department)
Mount Zion (Where I graduated great Performing Arts and Grasphic Arts Program)
Forest Park
Mundy's Mill
North Clayton

The county will open a new high school in te fall called Drew High School will have a health sciences program because of location behind the hospital

The school's (actual schools) are not that bad they are comparable to other schools in the ATL Metro area. Whats bad about the school's is the administration and the people at the top that totally lost sight of the children. Hope you havee fun in Clayco
