Jackson High named one of the best High Schools in the country by U.S. News and BusinessWeek

BusinessWeek second national magazine to name Maynard Jackson as one of best U.S. high schools

ATLANTA – BusinessWeek magazine named APS’ Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School (formerly Southside High) Thursday as one of the best high schools in the nation.

BusinessWeek ranked Southside as the best low-income high school in Georgia, with a GreatSchools rating of six out of 10. 

It was the second national magazine to rank Jackson as one of the best in the past month. U.S. News & World Report singled Jackson out as one of the best in December.

The state-by-state ranking of U.S. high schools was compiled for BusinessWeek by San Francisco-based GreatSchools. For each state, it also identified the most improved high school, and the best high school serving a low-income population, as well as the public and private schools that were rated highest by visitors to GreatSchools.
