With Few Exceptions, Number of High School Dropouts Decrease in Fulton County

A review of data compiled by the Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) contains some very good news for Fulton County high schools.

The number of students dropping out decreased between 2010 and 2013.

In 2010, 1,629 high school students quit. By 2013, that number fell to 1,163.

Most Fulton County high schools saw a decrease in their dropouts. However, Banneker High School in unincorporated south Fulton County nearly doubled their number of dropouts between 2012 and 2013.

The table below details the dropout numbers for each Fulton County high school between 2010 and 2013:
