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.


Home-School Partnership: Working Together to Fulfill the Promise of Gwinnett

During the month of February, Gwinnett County Public Schools is focusing on the partnership between home and school and the important role this plays in helping students to fulfill their Promise. Family engagement is critical to student achievement. Parents and guardians work with teachers and schools in a variety of ways. After all, they are their children's first teacher!
