Gwinnett County Public Schools, located in the metro Atlanta area, is the largest school system in Georgia and continues to grow. That continued growth can be attributed to the fact that GCPS is a school system of choice for people moving to the Atlanta area. Gwinnett County citizens highly value the important role education plays in building a thriving, global community and they strongly support the school system's pursuit of excellence. The finest teachers in the profession, involved parents, and a supportive community are key elements in the district's quest to become a system of world-class schools.
In 2013-14, the school district is serving 169,150 students. One of every five Gwinnett County residents is a GCPS student.
