Our Culture


Helping Students Achieve

Gwinnett County Public Schools provides a quality and effective education for all students by focusing on its core business of teaching and learning. Since its inception in 1996, GCPS’ AKS curriculum has reflected the collective wisdom of thousands of educators and community members who worked together to determine what students need to know and be able to do in order to be successful at the next grade level and in the future. 

A Bright Future Ahead

Our mission is to pursue excellence in academic knowledge, skills, and behavior for each student, resulting in measured improvement against local, national, and world-class standards.

Our vision is to become a system of world-class schools where students acquire the knowledge and skills to be successful in college and careers.
