I need to create a map that shows school quality in Atlanta. I'm having a really hard time finding either test score data or school proficiency data.

Where or how can I search for this?

  • Wow...I guess I am more lost on this school project than I realized. I guess I would want a shape file but I did some googling and I think I can create a shapefile from a csv. Is that right? As for school types, I think high school but I'll take anything I can find at this point. Commented Apr 26, 2017 at 14:06

The "2018 CCRPI Data Report" PDF report from https://www.atlantapublicschools.us has tabular data quantifying schools. You can easily copy/paste to Excel or similar tool.

You'd need still to map these schools, but since there are not thousands, you could do so manually, or with a geocoding API.

You can also consider filing a FOIA request to https://www.atlantapublicschools.us for the data, but then you'd have to very specifically define what you need.
