Gwinnett county public schools are very diverse. From my perspective I think getting involved in extracurricular activities helps you enjoy your years in school a little bit more, not only because you get to meet a lot of new people, but because you get to have to full experience! Being part of extracurricular activities is good, but you also have to be focused on you classes in order to go on to the next level.

I’ve been in the system since kindergarten, and it’s been great! The teachers are really involved and genuinely care about their students lives in and out of school. Administration is so hard working and represent our schools well. Couldn’t be more happy with my primary education!
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!
