Denmark High School

Summary:

Denmark High School is a public high school serving 2,459 students in grades 9-12 in Alpharetta, Georgia, which is part of the highly-ranked Forsyth County School District. This diverse school consistently ranks among the top high schools in Georgia, with strong academic performance, high graduation rates, and a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Denmark High School's academic excellence is evident in its ranking of 29th out of 442 schools in Georgia for the 2022-2023 school year. Students at Denmark outperform the Forsyth County and state averages on the Milestones Assessments, particularly in subjects like American Literature and Composition, Biology, and United States History. The school's four-year graduation rate of 96.6% in 2021-2022 is significantly higher than the state average, and its diverse student population includes a higher percentage of Asian and Hispanic students compared to nearby schools.

While Denmark High School's academic performance sets it apart, other high schools in the Forsyth County School District, such as Alliance Academy for Innovation and Lambert High School, also rank among the top schools in the state. This suggests that the district as a whole is providing a high-quality education to its students. Additionally, Denmark High School's higher spending per student compared to some nearby schools may contribute to its strong academic results and low student-teacher ratio.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
