I’m coming from a minority driven school, so we’re (the school) not rich. We don’t have access to the best laptops, computer labs, best looking classrooms, or cafeteria. But a school doesn’t need the best supplies to succeed, nor a good reputation. I’ve been surrounded by bad ratings from this school, but the school doesn’t define who you are. I’ve been motivated to succeed, and I have been all these years. The school’s test scores doesn’t define the school. The teachers and students do. I’ve been around many great people in this school, with some great teachers and students. They’ve shaped me, and lead me to success all throughout my current years in high school. To conclude, my high school experience was amazing, I’ve met many people and teachers that left a huge impact on me.

Gwinnett County Public schools have great schools, teachers and a great curriculum as well as great sports. Our teachers care about the students and do what they can to help everyone reach their goals. They help parents detect issues with their children and when an IEP is needed, they walk you through what is done and what expectations there are. They don't pass along students to get rid of them, they honestly want the students to learn and to progress. Our sports teams are extremely competitive and play in the highest classifications than most. Because of this, fundamentals are taught from an early age and we deliver some of the best athletes from across the country...and they're smart athletes that we are very proud of...many of them go on to play at a professional level. We have the best parks, the best schools, the best teachers, and the be best students. most of our larger schools have achieved Gold and platinum statuses
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.
