North Gwinnett has many opportunities including the wide variety of APs and even a specialized STEM sector called ChargeNorth. We also provide a lot of unique clubs and sports. I've personally have had amazing connections with my teachers and one of them even wrote me a recommendation that got me to volunteer at a hospital! The teachers are here ready to answer your questions and the faculty and staff members are always available to help you. I always feel safe at my school too. We have amazing events that we host like Trunk or Treat, International Night, and more! Our school's library, aka the CLC, has a huge variety of books, textbooks, and other resources for you to study.

Great school, they definitely prepared us very well actually too well! I think I might have to say I was more stressed with the work load at North Gwinnett than that of college! The faculty is good but I felt like there was always a connection lacking between the students and teachers! The diversity was not the best but I guess it’s also because of the area it is located in. The sports are definitely well off but I feel like they depended to much on sports and never really cared about the arts:( All i all good school, needs more diversity especially when it comes to choosing students for positions.
