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!

Some of the things that have really stuck with me while being a student in Gwinnett County are not only the people but the opportunities I have been given at Meadowcreek High School. I had the privilege of being part of a work study program for my junior and senior year. Through this program, I was taught many of the business professionalism I know today such as, interview do's and don'ts, how to write a proper resume, and other significant business tips. Through the program, I took the position of Artwork and Production Designer leaving me with an unforgettable working experience. The student body is a very unique crowd and I have met a lot of the most inspirational and professional students, some whom I've grown close with out of others who have left great impressions on me. Partaking in school events and joining clubs such as, DECA, Key Club, Hope, and Robotics have made me realize the abundance of passion that lies within the hearts of students and faculty here in Gwinnett County.
In my experience with Gwinnett County Public Schools, I found that it is a reasonably strong system of learning institutions which has some several excellent schools that are the benchmark for much of Georgia and others which are unfortunately lagging behind these high standards. Personally, I was in a school district which seemed to represent a good medium between those points. While I did not find academic standards or resources to be great, I found many very talented students from diverse backgrounds as well as enough motivated teachers to help them do well. For the most part, I can say that my development as a student and person was positively impacted by being in GCPS although this is largely dependent on the attitude you bring to your own education.
