  • FCS Achievement Zone Logo

    Launched in 2015, the Achievement Zone is a geographic area that makes up the Banneker High School attendance boundary in the southern end of the Fulton County School district. The Achievement Zone is designed to accelerate the school district's efforts to improve academic outcomes for the students who attend schools within the zone.

    The Achievement Zone designs, coordinates, and implements strategies to close the achievement gap in the Banneker cluster by focusing on three strategic themes: Talent, Culture and Climate, and Learning and Teaching.

    • Talent: We ensure all students have access to high quality learning and teaching by accelerating and concentrating initiatives to recruit, hire, develop, and retain the most talented and effective employees. View our recruitment video.
    • Culture and Climate: We create student-centered learning environments where all staff and stakeholders believe unequivocally that all students are capable of achieving at high levels and assume responsibility for student success.
    • Learning and Teaching: We utilize high-leverage, research-based practices and strategies to accelerate students’ learning, particularly in the area of literacy.

    Schools within the Achievement Zone are committed to implementing research-based strategies which have proven successful in turnaround environments across the nation. Additional strategies will be phased in over the course of the next few years.
