Recognition & Awards
National academic rankings, high test scores and award-winning scholars, artists and athletes are the result of the community's high value placed on its public schools.
Of the 19 public Fulton County schools within Johns Creek, four of them (Chattahoochee High, River Trail Middle, Medlock Bridge Elementary and Dolvin Elementary) are recipients of the US Department of Education's highest honor, the Blue Ribbon National School of Excellence. Three schools – Chattahoochee High, Taylor Road Middle and Haynes Bridge Middle – are recognized as Georgia Schools of Excellence.
Northview High is a two-year recipient of the State AAAAA Governor's Cup and, along with Chattahoochee and Centennial, is consistently named "Best High School" by Atlanta Magazine.
Centennial, Chattahoochee and Northview are recognized each year by Newsweek Magazine as a "Top 1,000 High School" and by US News and World Report as "Outstanding American High School."
Annually, each high school is represented by a substantial number of National Merit Scholarship finalists and winners, and national, regional and state honors abound in extracurricular programs in debate, lacrosse, Academic Bowls, football, cheerleading, mathematics, robotics, soccer, baseball, Jr. ROTC, school newspapers, computer programming and engineering.
Over 50% of the faculty of Johns Creek's public schools have their Masters degrees and 20% hold doctorate or specialist degrees. Like their students, many Johns Creek teachers have received national honors and awards, including the Milken Family Foundation Award.
