Accreditation[edit]

On December 17, 2012, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announced that it had downgraded the DeKalb County Schools System's status from "on advisement" to "on probation," and warned the school system that the loss of their accreditation was "imminent."

However, DeKalb County named Lithonia as one of its top ten improved schools in 2012.[1]
