The first day of school is quickly approaching, and it’s time to find a new Atlanta home in an amazing school district. Stonecrest, built by Azalea Homes, is located in the third-ranked Buford City School District. All four of the schools located in the district met 2011 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and have received numerous awards over the years.
Buford Elementary School is for children in kindergarten and first grade. The school offers a differentiated curriculum designed for each individual student to ensure that each child gains the knowledge, values and skills necessary to become productive, life-long learners. A 2009-2010 Platinum Award for Greatest Gains and Gold Award winner for Highest Performance from the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, Buford Elementary is also a Title I Distinguished School, meaning they have made AYP at least three years in a row.
Buford Academy, which first opened in 1884, is home to second through fifth grades. The Academy has the largest elementary school chorus in the state, and they are ranked 215 out of 1,165 Georgia elementary schools by www.SchoolDigger.com.
Rising from 150 in 2008 to 58 in 2012 out of 483 middle schools, Buford Middle School has shown significant improvements and has become one of the top middle schools in the state. Buford Middle performed better than 88 percent of Georgia middle schools, with more than 95 percent of students passing the math and reading portions on the end-of-course tests.
Priding themselves on Triple A Excellence in Academics, Athletics and Arts, Buford High School was ranked number 15 in the state by U.S. News and World Report. With a 17 to 1 student to teacher ratio, students tested at 97 percent efficient on both the math and English portions of the state graduation exams.
The community of Stonecrest is comprised of single-family, two-story homes ranging from $450,000 to $550,000. The floor plans, designed to fit any lifestyle, are on much larger home sites than those that are offered by other communities in the area. Located just minutes from Lake Lanier Islands, the Mall of Geogia, I-85 and I-985, Stonecrest is in the middle of it all. Add on the award-winning Buford City Schools that your children will be attending, and this is the perfect place for any family to call home.
