My experiences in Gwinnett County's Public school have been outstanding! Not only does it provide high education for students but it helps pursue excellence in the students lives for them to become better people in the community. Gwinnett County Public Schools do a great job in making sure that every student gets informed for what is need in their futures, their goals and their lives.

I think Gwinnett is a good county. They pay their teachers lower than some other county but the teachers are great. It is a very suburban county but it also has diversity. Gwinnett has some IB schools and offers many AP courses. We need to put more money into the Arts- sometimes it feels like the football teams get most f the funding.Sometimes we focus more on taking certain classes rather than learning practical skills so more "life classes" should be offered. We also should have more clubs in schools. Parental involvement is pretty strong in Gwinett from my experience.PTA in schools is very prominent. Gwinnett schools are pretty safe compared to other counties in Georgia. And there is a good amount of funding for schools, so many schools have a lot of resources. I loved going to school in Gwinnett County. I have really great experiences. So if you are considering putting your child in a Gwinnett County school I think you might have some satisfactory results.

I currently go to Parkview High School and the past almost four years there has been wonderful! It's an experience populated with a variety of clubs, sports, fine arts, and so much more to become part of and as well as the diverse ethnicity around campus.
