A survey revealed how people rated the services provided by the city council.
It found 90% of those questioned recorded high levels of satisfaction with secondary and primary schools, with 84% happy with city nurseries.
A report to councillors said the findings show satisfaction levels with all education services have increased since autumn 2012, most notably for secondary schools, where the figure has risen from 81% to 90%.
In recent years, the council has embarked on a process of closing and merging half empty, rundown schools.
l In 1996, the local authority ran 210 primaries and 42 secondaries - it now has 137 primaries and 30 secondaries.
l Over the same period, it has spent £550million in building and refurbishing secondary and primary schools across the city.
l A further £250m will be spent replacing or refurbishing further poor quality primary, nursery and additional support for learning schools.
The result of the survey was welcomed by Stephen Curran, the council's spokesman for education and young people.
He said: "Education in Glasgow reached a whole new level of success this year with a reduced number of exclusions, improved attainment and the best exams results.
"We are also making good progress improving school buildings. It is clear to everyone our schools are getting better and better."
The survey of 1000 people also showed residents were happy with the services provided by Glasgow Life, the council arm's length organisation that runs the city's sports facilities, libraries, community centres and museums.
The report states: "As with previous surveys, the services provided by Glasgow Life continue to attract the highest satisfaction levels."
Nine out of 10 people said they were satisfied with museums and galleries, 93% with libraries, and more than eight out of 10 were happy with sports and leisure centres.
Satisfaction rates for community centres were lower than other Glasgow Life services, with 67% of people saying they were happy with what was available.
More than three quarters of people said they had taken part in at least one sporting activity in the past four weeks.
l The most common was walking for at least 30 minutes, which was mentioned by 64% of those questioned.
l This was followed by swimming at 17%.
l Running or jogging was 14%.
l Keep fit/aerobics 13%.
l Gym weight training 13%.
Of those who said they had followed a major sporting event in 2012, three in 10 said they or another household member had been motivated to do more sport as a result.
Glasgow Life chairman Archie Graham said: "Last year, Glasgow Life again broke records, with more than 17.5m attendances across the city.
"What is more satisfying is people continue to value their museums, libraries and sports facilities and more and more people are becoming active and involved.
"That does not happen by accident. By investing in projects such as the Riverside Museum - the current European Museum Of The Year - or outstanding sports centres, such as the Emirates Arena and Tollcross International Swimming Centre, we can continue to provide world-class sport and cultural opportunities for our citizens.
"I am also delighted to see more and more people are motivated to do more sport after being inspired by some of the major sporting events we have recently welcomed to the city."
But while seven in 10 of people questioned said they were satisfied overall with services provided by the council and its partners, the number of people happy with the state of the roads has fallen.
The Evening Times Pothole Watch campaign has highlighted the many problems in city roads and council bosses have promised extra cash will be spent to fix the thousands of potholes and to replace worn road surfaces.
The report said: "All services, except road maintenance have recorded an increase in satisfaction since autumn 2012.
"Most notably, satisfaction levels for street lighting have increased from 74% to 82% and refuse collection from 73% to 79% since autumn last year.
"Satisfaction with road maintenance decreased 7% from 26% to 19%."
A council spokesman said: "Glasgow has an 1100-mile road network and about 500,000 vehicles make journeys on a daily basis.
"This network was designed and largely constructed in an era when traffic volumes were much smaller and vehicles were lighter, but it has stood up well to changing demands.
"Indeed, for some time the condition of roads in Glasgow has consistently been better than the Scottish average.
"However, we are inevitably now seeing signs of stress in the most heavily used roads.
"In addition, streets are also required to withstand about 20,000 road openings annually by utilities providing services such as water and power.
"Three years ago, we spent £46m to ensure we reach busy city centre streets and residential roads and wipe out thousands of potholes.
"On top of that investment, the council announced a budget this year that will mean more than £36m for roads and pavements."
