One of the best schools in the nation is right in our own backyard. But it's not Grady High School, according to U.S. News and World Report. The Midtown-based Atlanta Public School, which draws students from that neighborhood, as well as Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, Candler Park and Old Fourth Ward, ranked 19th statewide and No. 1,204 in the nation.

The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology, a public charter in …
