Cobb Teachers Rank Among the Best in Georgia 

Recent test scores, like the SAT and ACT, show Cobb students leading their peers across the state of Georgia and even across the nation. There’s a reason why Cobb students continue to excel year after year. Some of Georgia’s Best Teachers work in the Cobb County School District.  

According to, about 25 percent of the state’s best elementary teachers support Cobb students. There are 23 Cobb County schools on Niche’s list of the top 100 Elementary Schools with the “Best Teachers in Georgia” for 2019.  That’s more than twice as many as any other school district in the state. 

Cobb middle school and high school teachers also rank among the best with 14 middle schools and nine high schools making the top 100 lists. Niche ranks Walton High School as the #1 charter high school in Georgia. At #14, Walton is also one of the best charter schools in the country. 

Cobb schools, teachers, and students not only rank among the best in Georgia, but Niche also puts Cobb’s cost per student below the other metro Atlanta school districts. Essentially, Cobb does more with less. rankings are based on rigorous analysis of academic and teacher data from the U.S. Department of Education along with millions of reviews from students and parents. Some of the information considered includes; student and parent ratings of teachers, teacher salaries, teacher absenteeism, teacher tenure, student-teacher ratio, and the Niche Academics Grade for the school. 

Because of the way calculates its list of outstanding teachers, it doesn’t give a complete picture of how Cobb teachers, across the District, impact students each and every day. Their students know it. Their fellow teachers know it. The community knows it, and that’s why the District celebrates Cobb teachers with events, like the Teachers of the Year Pep Rally and #PhenomenalFriday surprise recognitions. Cobb also fosters the teachers’ creativity and praises their ingenuity with events like CobbTank. Those may be some of the reasons that Cobb teachers #LovetoTeachHere.

Here’s what some Cobb students said about their teachers on Niche: 

“The teaching staff and resources were phenomenal in preparing me for a rigorous college curriculum…” 

The teachers were amazing and really take the time to try to help you and allow you to succeed. 

“I love Cobb County Schools because I know that I have received a great education. I have made many wonderful friends and have loved my high school experience. I have also had amazing teachers that care about me and my education.” 

I love Cobb County! I have always loved learning and thriving in this community. There is tons of diversity, caring teachers and staff, and a safe and secure environment. Everyone cares about each other.” 

My teachers encourage me to strive for the best each and every single day no matter how stressful life can get. They remind me that I am more than just a student or a GPA, but that I am the future of our society and I must always keep myself going.”

In August, Niche ranked Cobb as the Best Big School District in Georgia
