The Promise of Gwinnett


Here in Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS), we believe in the Promise... the promise of our students to reach their potential, the promises on which our employees deliver each and every day, and the promises that we make and keep as an organization to prepare our kids for their best future.

Thanks to the support and belief of their families, schools, and community, our students can look forward to a future full of promise. We Believe!

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.


We Believe in the Promise of Innovation

For nearly two decades, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) has maintained its reputation as a high-performing organization even as the community experienced incredible growth and change, and our schools faced rising academic expectations. Our singular focus on preparing our students for college, career, and citizenship has served our community well. Know that our reputation is well-deserved and no accident. However, we know we can’t stop working, changing, continuously improving, and innovating so that our students will have the 21st century skills they need for the world that waits for them after graduation. With many avenues to a successful future, GCPS makes sure our students have the options and opportunities they need to explore the best route to their dreams.
