Gwinnett County schools was great! It was very challenging at times with the standardized tests. However, there were tons of clubs, sports, and opportunities. I was involved with FBLA(Future Business Leaders of America) Key Club, and Art Club.

I like Gwinnett County Public Schools, because I am surrounded by different kinds of students who come from different kinds of backgrounds. The teachers and staff at Gwinnett County Public Schools go above and beyond to help the students. Gwinnett County Public Schools hire hard working teachers. Our teachers at Gwinnett County Public Schools not only teach what is required from the curriculum but teach other interesting subjects and lessons that will help us in the real world.Our teachers at Gwinnett County Public Schools create fun lessons and activities that will help us learn the criteria. The teachers at Gwinnett County Public Schools do not clock in and clock out at the same time everyday. Many of our teachers in Gwinnett County Public Schools stay after school to help us on a subject that we are having trouble with. Attending a public school in Gwinnett County is great experience.
Overall, Gwinnett County Public Schools are well maintained and updated, both, structurally and educationally. Something that stands out to me from the schools, is the unity from the students towards a common goal and how they all help each other to succeed with the help of good instructors and mentors. A suggestion to better county schools would be providing the students with more technological involvement, finding a way to relate more to the student body, as well as teachers being more personal with their students in the sense of perceiving themselves as individuals, not only teachers. This way, students will feel more encouraged and feel more comfortable asking questions, than when they do not feel they can trust the teacher.
