Overall, this school is really good. While the academic experience can be very tough and demanding of the students, it is totally worth it. This school is the epitome of people bonding through an extremely tough experience. Through all of the late nights studying and the early morning cramming that we all go through together, I have been able to exit with friends that I would not have been able to make at any other place in the world. The shared experience is amazing. Other than that, the teachers are best part of the school. Most of the teachers here are really good and some of them are really fun. I have taken some of my most (and only) enjoyable classes with the teachers here just because they are so amazing. Just because a class is fun or amazing does not mean that it is easy though! While I had doubts in the beginning, I do not regret a single second of my experience at GSMST. As they say, WE ARE GSMST!

The diverse culture of the school is definitely the best thing about it. Gwinnett is one of the most diverse counties in the nation, and this is shown at GSMST. Our international night is considered one of the best in the state, and other school events highlight different aspects of student life. Unfortunately, a recent change in administration resulted in nearly all cultural, religious, and other non-academic clubs being removed. This really affected the culture of the school, especially for students of color. The nature of a high-ranking STEM school creates an incredibly competitive atmosphere for students through testing, extracurriculars, and coursework. Unfortunately this takes a damaging toll on students' mental health, often leads to an epidemic of stress at the school. Most of the teachers are very engaging though, and the courses we take look good to colleges as long as we do okay.
The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science & Technology undoubtedly pushes students to become the best that they can be. There is a lot of pressure and a large workload, as well as advanced coursework and competition between students. However, all these things add up to create a strong mentality. Students learn to become persistent and hardworking, characteristics that are very useful for college. Also, there are many ways to get help if your workload becomes too much at times. Speaking with your counselor or teacher are both great solutions. There aren't any sports, but there are so many other clubs that can spark your interest. The student diversity and life are also lively and vivacious. GSMST teaches students to become resilient and adaptable and provides one of the best education systems to high schoolers.
