North Gwinnett High School is a place where I feel safe and free to be myself. I strongly believe that I am getting the best education that I can possibly get here at North simply because the teachers here are committed to helping their student to not just simply pass/graduate high school, but to make a difference in their students’ lives for the better! One thing that I love about this school is the amount of diversity here. There are people of all sorts of racial mixes, unique ethnicities, and the best part is that they all come from different backgrounds that somehow bring people closer together, too. However, I gave NGHS four stars only because not everywhere is a perfect place and that things may happen out of the convenience of other people at the school. The large amount of school spirit here at NGHS is phenomenal in which everyone participates and supports each other, which is what being a true NGHS bulldog means!

North Gwinnett High School is more than just a school; it’s a community of students, teachers, and administration working collectively to achieve a higher and outstanding education. Attending North Gwinnett and getting involved with the culture of the community in both athletics and student led clubs, I was able to succeed and prosper to be the student and leader I am today! North Gwinnett gave me a place to voice my opinions and concerns and challenged me to ask the hard questions.
My experience at North Gwinnett has been amazing. The amount of support from the faculty and staff is indescribable. Although I have an IEP for my learning disabilities and health conditions, my teachers never expected anything less of me. They knew I could handle the same workload as everyone else due to my self-determination and work ethic. Through numerous surgeries, the work piled up but they supported me and helped me stay on track. Not only does my school have supportive staff, but we also have amazing extracurriculars. North Gwinnett offers over 90 clubs so students can always find their "Niche". Along with that, the amount of effort our community puts into our athletic programs is unheard of. School spirit is a huge deal at North Gwinnett which carries over to athletics. I know high school is a stepping stone in my education and I’m beyond excited for the next chapter. I can honestly say I'm going to miss high school thanks to the faculty and staff for making it so memorable.
