I loved the diversity in Gwinnett County Schools, specifically in Duluth High School. Everyone is caring, friendly, and enthusiastic about one passion or another, and the wide variety of perspectives is truly mind-boggling. My four years in a Gwinnett County High School has truly prepared me for the diversity and adversity awaiting me in college, and because of my experiences, I can not wait to take on the challenge!

Personally, as a student of Gwinnett County Public Schools, the school system is VERY competitive. Not only are there thousands and thousands of students taking multiple AP's, but practically all of them are excelling in these classes. There is an enormous gap between the types of students. Teachers average out to be mediocre because we have the extremely good teacher who care about their students and those who couldn't care less. Sports and extracurriculars are very well developed and it's quite easy to begin a new club. Support from the community is shown very well, however socially, there are the usual cliches and social hierarchy of high school. Overall, Gwinnett County Schools is a VERY good school system that I'm proud to graduate from.
As a junior currently attending a high school that falls under the Gwinnett county public school district, I have since the start of my education in 2006 been attending schools in this county. Overall for my elementary school life was pleasant as one looks back and notices that stage of growth and introduction to one of a myriad of school subjects. The peers I was with in the first part was concentrated with more Hispanics including me. In middle school, the school I went to was not as striving as students got into frequent fights and administrators inconveniently lacking the issues of minor things because of the amounts of fights. I then moved to a completely different areas of the county and saw a drastic difference in culture, and academics were much enforced as classes and teachers became more rigorous and in high school.
