Atlanta's Upgrade

State-of-the-art high school opens in Atlanta—can the new school reform the district’s image?

Can a new school reform a district’s image? Atlanta is betting $147 million that North Atlanta High will do just that.

The new school in the exclusive Buckhead area opened this year in a former IBM building. It houses 1,400 students—the population will eventually grow to 2,400 students—and offers a performing arts complex, a broadcast and video center, and a rifle range for the shooting team, according to a story in The New York Times. The gym can seat nearly 2,000 people.

Despite its chichi location, the school will have a diverse set of students, principal Howard E. Taylor said. Nearly one in three are white, but almost half are African-American and 20 percent are Hispanic. The principal hopes to boost the grad rate from its current 61 percent to 90 percent. “If there was ever a model for an urban high school, this is it,” he adds.

Earlier this year, 35 Atlanta educators—including then-superintendent Beverly Hall—were indicted in a cheating scandal.

    The evil Lord Voldemort and his supporters, the Death Eaters, have infiltrated every aspect of the Wizarding world, with frightening and tragic results. With the guidance of Professor Dumbledore, it's time for Harry Potter to join the fight; but first, he must learn all he can about the wizard who intends to kill him.

    Meanwhile, life at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry goes on. The professors are more demanding than ever; especially Professor Snape, whose loyalties are starting to seem very suspect. Harry develops powerful new skills in magic, thanks to a textbook that once belonged to the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. And like 16-year-olds everywhere, Harry and his best friends, Ron and Hermione, experience the perils of love and heartbreak.

    As Harry's inevitable battle with Voldemort grows ever closer, he comes to understand exactly what it will take to defeat the Dark Lord for good. His mission leads him and Dumbledore to the darkest corners of the Wizarding world and into the depths of Voldemort's wickedness; and results in betrayals and sacrifices of epic proportions.

    With touching, funny revelations, a shocking conclusion, and an entirely new set of magical secrets yet to unfold, this sixth volume sets the stage for the monumental final battle to come.
