    Overall Experience at Norcross High School: My school, Norcross, has the IB Diploma program, one of the best academic programs in the world, some of the most amazing teachers and it excels in sports; it is honestly one of the best high schools in Gwinnett County, and quite possibly in all of Georgia. If I could, I would attend Norcross again because it is an all around great school packed with diversity and opportunity for all students to succeed!

    Overall Experience at Brookwood High School: I have only met a handful of disagreeable students. Everyone else is friendly and strives to do their best, and helping hands are everywhere. The teachers are top-notch which makes classes enjoyable despite large class sizes.

    Overall Experience at Mill Creek High School: I would choose this school over and over again if I had to. Everything about it is unique and it has classes for every type of student. The staff are nice and are always there to help and although, the hallways are crowded and it's hard to get through, they give you plenty of time to get to your classes. Overall, Mill Creek is a great school.

    Overall Experience at Grayson High School: The school doesn't help with scheduling and how to prepare for college. As a freshman I didn't know anything or any classes and they didn't make it any easier.

    Overall Experience at Shiloh High School: Shiloh high school is very strict with academics and school rules. Although they may seem a little tough at first,thought the years you begin to realize the mean no harm to the students. The faculty and staff at Shiloh try their best to make all of their students successful but they're little things that step in the way of that. For example a lot of our school work is now online. Having the ability to get help with course work online is amazing but can also be a downfall for those who don't have computers or access to wifi. Although it can be inconvenient, having that extra help online is very beneficial for many students and I can learn to appreciate it. Overall Shiloh is a good school and the faculty and staff are learning from their mistakes as well as the students.
