Best Public Schools in Zip Code 31217


The 31217 zip code area is home to 5 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 0 middle schools, 0 high schools, and 2 alternative schools serving students in the juvenile justice system. While Mattie Wells Elementary School stands out as the highest-performing school in the area, the overall academic performance of the elementary schools is concerning, with students significantly underperforming county and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency.

The schools in this area serve predominantly low-income families, with all three elementary schools having high rates of free/reduced lunch recipients, ranging from 66.61% at Mattie Wells Elementary to 100% at Burdell Elementary and Bernd Elementary. This socioeconomic factor likely contributes to the academic challenges faced by these schools, which also show potential funding and resource disparities, with spending per student ranging from $10,122 to $11,786.

The alternative schools, Macon Youth Development Campus and Macon Regional Youth Detention Center, serve a unique student population and face their own set of challenges, including extremely low test scores, graduation rates, and student-teacher ratios. Addressing the complex needs of these schools, as well as the socioeconomic and resource disparities in the broader Jones County and Bibb County communities, will be crucial in improving educational outcomes for all students in the 31217 zip code area.
