Following an evaluation by Glasgow City Council and Education Scotland, the national schools inspectorate, the authority was given an impressive report card which included a reduction in pupil suspensions and increased attendance.
Councillor Stephen Curran, executive member for education and young people, said: "This is a glowing report card for the council and proves that education staff across the city are having a positive impact on our children's education.
"Young people remain at the heart of this council. This report demonstrates that our education services are improving and have the capacity to improve further."
Education experts, led by four head teachers from Glasgow, looked at key areas of schooling: achievement, how inclusive schools are, how nurtured pupils are and youngsters' health.
For six months, from January this year, they interviewed parents, pupils and staff across Glasgow.
And the report, published yesterday and assessed by Education Scotland, found learning and attainment to be on the rise in the city.
The report found pupils to be nurtured across the city with particular praise for classes set up to help disadvantaged pupils who need additional support.
Schools were seen to be working well with outside organisations, including Place2Be, Positive Parenting (Triple P), Families in Partnership and Active School Coordinators. The health and wellbeing of pupils was praised with inspectors noting that health is improving in most schools.
Pupils were seen to be aware of how to keep themselves active and healthy, with Education Services working with the NHS to hold health summits for secondary schools.
However, bosses did note that more needs to be done to evaluate the results of health work with children and young people across the city.
Early years establishments, primary schools and special needs schools were found to be particularly good at building young people's mental, emotional and social wellbeing, although teachers were told they must work to track pupils' progress and achievement outside of school as well as in class.
Mr Curran added: "I'm delighted that the reports published today confirm that our robust and effective self-evaluation processes and procedures are resulting in significant progress across a number of key areas – improvements in attainment, a notable reduction in exclusions, down nearly 50% in some areas, increased attendance, more school-leavers going to positive destinations, and more positive evaluations in Education Scotland reports."
