Grovetown High School and Parkway Elementary School as 2024 Military Flagship SchoolsThe Georgia Department of Education recently recognized Grovetown High School and Parkway Elementary School as 2024 Military Flagship Schools for going above and beyond to provide a supportive environment for military students and families. Nearly 50% of the student population from Parkway and about 45% of the student population from Grovetown High are from military-connected families.

In addition, all five Columbia County School District high schools earned recognition as a Best High School for 2024 in U.S. News & World Report’s recent ranking of public high schools. Of the nearly 25,000 public high schools across the nation, approximately 17,655 high schools were ranked. About 432 of the nearly 472 public high schools in Georgia were ranked.

Greenbrier landed among the top 12% of high schools ranked in the state and the nation. Lakeside was among the top 19%, and Grovetown and Evans were in the top 40% of the best ranked high schools in the state and the nation. The school rankings are based on excellence in serving students in six key areas: college readiness, college curriculum breadth, state assessment proficiency and performance, and graduation rate.
