This high school is definitely not the best in Gwinnett County in terms of opportunities and sports but it was definitely a great experience and I have memorable moments that will stay in my mind forever. Most of the teachers that I have encountered were awesome and helpful towards me and the counselors were amazing. The counselors were extremely supportive towards me and will be in my heart forever. This school is a great school despite its dramas and reputation and I recommend anyone who will be attending Central to not be fearful and have a good time!

Super cool school with lots of opportunities, you just have to put yourself out there! Some students have a bad attitude if the school because outsiders seem to think it’s a bad school, but it honestly has lots of good opportunities. The school spirit could be better, but there are many students who advocate for the school.
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!
