I've attended Central Gwinnett High School for four consecutive years, and I am proud to express my gratitude for the administrators, counselors, advisers, friends, and most importantly, the teachers. Throughout my high school endeavor, I relished the peculiar culture of Central Gwinnett, the vibrant diversity, and the heart-warming receptiveness of all the adults and students alike. I am glad I indulged myself in the various academic career and technical organizations, along with the abundance of college-preparation programs that was offered genuinely by the school. Graduating from Central Gwinnett High School will be a life changing event in my lifetime, as I will be departing from a place I could call home. Even as I pursue my aspirations for my future, I will always remember Central Gwinnett not merely as an institution of intuition, but as the place I once had a life-changing experience!

My experience has been subpar as of lately. You really must make an effort to be involved, make friends and have good grades. If not you will have a bad time. That pretty much goes for any school to be honest.. I've grown to love this school. The students not so much, the majority are rude and disrespectful to teachers and fellow students. The hallways are crowded... but if you surround with like minded people (who want to do well and be involved in school activites) and overall positive individuals. It will make it seem like the rude students aren't even there.
Central Gwinnett High School was an interesting experiment. I love how diverse it is, that is what really helped me connect with new people. Even though their sports are not a winning team but you make very good friends and you have a wonderful time playing whatever sport you enjoy playing. I played volleyball my senior year and it was a great experience. There are some people you would want to avoid simply to avoid drama. There are some teachers that don't really teach but the majority of teachers I had taught. This school specifically is not as hard as I thought compared to other schools I've been to. Now if you take ap classes then that's different, but the majority of the classes is not that hard. As long as you pay attention in class. One thing I did not like is how short their lunches are because of the block schedule. We only have 22 minutes for lunch which is not enough time to eat. But overall I think block schedule is good because you can graduate early if you wanted.
