The Promise of Gwinnett


Public education is a cornerstone of America, playing a key role in building a strong community and strong nation and working to ensure a future filled with promise for all students.

In recognition of the promise in every child, Gwinnett County Public Schools is celebrating 2016-17 as a Year of Promise for our students, for our staff, and for the community at large.

We are the future.


Simply put, our students are “the Promise of Gwinnett,” and what happens each and every day in the classroom helps them to fulfill their promise. Our students’ accomplishments— big and small, those recognized with awards and those that result from overcoming a challenge — reflect the promise that every student holds for a bright future.


“The Promise of Gwinnett” is a testament to the crucial role of public education. For only public schools offer every child the educational opportunities that can open a world of possibilities they otherwise might never know. Our GCPS team is committed to keeping its promise to our students and to our community!

Parents & Community

At its heart, “The Promise of Gwinnett” is found in the collective talents, will, passion, and dedication of all who make up the Gwinnett community. Whatever our ages, backgrounds, or status, we are partners in the promise. We all are needed to bring it to life.


Looking Ahead to a Future Filled with Promise

During the month of May, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) is focusing on the future… a future filled with Promise for our students. We believe that every student has the Promise of a bright future ahead. And, every day, GCPS teachers shape that future by helping our students fulfill their potential. Our schools ensure that Gwinnett students have a solid academic foundation, preparing our students to take their places as responsible adults, contributing members of society, and engaged citizens. As our 139 schools bring the 2016–17 school year to a close, we thank our teachers, support staff, school and district leaders, families, and community partners for all that they do to support our students and a future filled with Promise… The Promise of Gwinnett.
