Lanier High School is a diverse school in which entering you feel automatically a welcoming atmosphere where you can learn, lead and succeed. Education being a key point in our society, the teachers and administrators provide their time and motivation to my classmates and I to get a higher education. Lanier is one of many schools that one is to make a huge difference to our students. One thing for sure is that the school should change the schedule we have which tires out the students more by seeing all the teachers in one day, thus overwhelming them. One teacher out of many in particular has gone above and beyond which perfectly exemplifies the mission of Lanier High School. This teacher is Mr. Jones. He continuously helps students reach their highest potential supporting them in their academic endeavors.

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.
Overall Gwinnett County Schools are pretty good. I attended Collins Hill High School from 2015 to 2019. The academics were great. I liked how they have different levels such as CP, Honors , and AP. The schoolwork did an excellent job on preparing me for college. The teachers did an incredible job in helping my with my academic needs. The activities that my school offered were amazing. I was apart of the Screamin' Eagle concert band and marching band. The band directors were incredible. They taught me the importance of hard work and dedication. Being in band was the best part of high school for me because I got to perform at every football game and compete against other marching bands on Saturdays and made some unforgettable memories. Plus I met some amazing people in the band. Gwinnett County Schools are overall good .
