Marietta is home to some of the highest ranked schools in the nation. There are two school districts for those with a Marietta address; the Marietta City School District and the Cobb County School District. Residents of the City of Marietta attend the Marietta City School District, and residents with a Marietta address but residing outside the Marietta city limits attend schools in the Cobb County School District.
If you are new to the area and unsure of your district, please contact the Cobb County School District Transportation Department or the Marietta City School District Transportation Department to determine the school zone for your specific address.
School Calendar Guidelines and Notes:
State law requires that students are in school 180 days or its equivalent. Each year, school districts are given four “emergency days” they can use for a variety of purposes. Many districts have been building those days into their calendars. The first semester includes 90 school days on average and ends prior to Winter Holidays. Second semester includes 90 school days on average, and typically ends prior to Memorial Day. Fall Break usually begins on the fourth Monday in September. Winter Break normally begins on the third Monday in February (Presidents Day). Spring Break usually begins on the first Monday in April, providing consistency with other metro school systems. The school year typically ends on a Wednesday to provide enough time to schedule graduation ceremonies.
