Great Schools Update
One of the challenges of maintaining a quality website and a healthy real estate business is to do both at the same time. Because of this, our website sometimes becomes very dated. The latest area of our website to come to my attention is the section about our local schools which is woefully out of date. With several new schools added in the last couple of years alone and more under construction it’s time for an update.
Gatlinburg Pittman, known for many years for its academic excellence, has again been recognized by a national review. This time, GP has been named in the top 8% of public schools nationally by the US New and World Report magazine organization. Their report evaluated nearly 19,000 schools from all of the United States on three basic criteria using data from the 2005-2006 school year. The three areas reviewed were:
Student academic performance in reading and math compared to other state schools.
Performance of the least advantaged students compared with similar students statewide.
School success providing college level coursework.
Great schools are just one of the many reasons more and more people are moving to the Gatlinburg area and Sevier County in general. For more information on our schools and details about registering students to Sevier County schools please use the links below:
