The focuses of the district include required academics such as reading, math, and science, but there's also an emphasis on fine arts, history, and world languages. Students' emotional and social learning are also addressed as they participate in classes and learn how to work with others, plus develop problem-solving skills, curate interests, and strive to be thoughtful citizens. Atlanta Public Schools has also invested heavily into technology and creating a 21st-century classroom with ample access to laptops and other technology. Initiatives include offering laptops and internet service to eligible households and providing tablets to first graders to improve reading aptitude. Their continued commitment to offering a well-rounded and complete education for their students has led to the district becoming one of Georgia's top-rated school systems. Several schools in the district have been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and are National Blue Ribbon schools of excellence. In addition to this achievement, 16 of the district's high schools have been listed on annual lists curated by U.S. News and World Report's Best U.S. High Schools.
