Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science & Technology Reviews

Overall, the vast academic opportunities GSMST provides far outweigh the negatives, but a large issue throughout the school is the stress caused by large workloads. As a student, I've found that I really enjoy classes where my teachers periodically incorporate stress-relieving activities into our day. For example, every Friday in German, classes have about fifteen minutes of yoga before beginning instruction. This helps keep everyone focused and enjoy their school experience more. Another class I've enjoyed because of this is World Studies, where the entire class will participate in a round of Just Dance on days when the teacher has decided we need a short mental health break. I believe if more teachers started incorporating short activities like these into their weekly or monthly class plans, it would drastically improve the experience of GSMST students, as well as their mental health.
Review Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science & Technology
GSMST is a super-awesome school, to say the least. The entire high school experience is a package, with diverse STEM courses taught on a whole another level of rigor and hands-on activity and a built-in internship opportunity. GSMST definitely prepares students for the college rigor, forcing students to develop their own study habits and be proactive. The school also offers a variety of clubs, including (obviously) a robotics club, VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program), an environmental club, and a chess team. There are various school events allowing students to de-stress and celebrate their diversity, such as International Night. The school - teachers and students alike - harbor a "family atmosphere" which really makes GSMST the special school it is.
GSMST is a great school that allowed me to have a fresh start. The entire student body is really friendly and you'll make friends in no time. It's no joke when people say that this school is tough. If you're planning to go to GSMST, you need to put your whole mind to focus on getting good grades. It's going to go downhill really fast and you just have to keep your focus. Good luck to the rising freshman!
