The quality of a high school is difficult to rank, but on two measures, SAT scores Georgia SAT scores *| ajc.com (http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-sat-scores-123218.html?appSession=461214726567767 - broken link)
and Newsweek rankings America's Top Public High Schools - Newsweek.com, I believe that North Gwinnett would rank highest from that list. Certainly, there are many arguments against the validity of those rankings, and I'm sure that there are other ways to rank those schools. BTW, Mountain View is probably too new to rank.

I do not know much about Mountain View but of the others you mentioned, North Gwinnett would be my pick.

Really, I don't think that there is much difference between those schools, as they all have good reputations. However, anecdotally, I have been told by some friends that Collins Hill is "not what it used to be," although I don't have any firsthand knowledge to confirm that opinion. You can always check out Greatschools.org for more school information.

Thanks.

Yes, like Ohio Native said, they are all about the same and good quality with great reputations. If I had to pick though, I'd pick Collins Hills. Why? Just based on that it is slightly "closer-in" than the other schools/areas.


My order:

Collins Hill
North Gwinnett
Mountain View
Mill Creek
Dacula

They're all really good schools, that have similar test scores but since I went to NGHS before they built Peachtree Ridge, I'd vote for neither and vote for PRHS. Mtn View is too new to rate/rank... PRHS has block scheduling and has a lot of money, which they spend on the students for trips, lab equip, etc. My next pick would be Collins Hill, only because I like the area where the school is on Taylor Road.
