My overall experience in the Gwinnett Public School System was a positive one. Each school is very diverse, and most ethnic cultures are represented in eachGwinnett County schools. Especially in high school, the teachers, and administration made sure they started talking about college early and college preparation. The teachers care about your grades, and in high school, they also care about your future, as far as where you'll end up after graduation. They schools are safe, I didn't experience any violent instances in school from k-12. I find that each school is very clean because the janitors do a great job of cleaning the schools each day after school. All in all, I think that Gwinnett County Public Schools is a great place to go to school and one of the best public school systems in north Georgia.
