"Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art."
-- Claude Debussy
Per tradition, North Gwinnett High School in partnership with the North Gwinnett Foundation hosts the American Education Breakfast in November of every year. It is part of this tradition that the community celebrates its strong fine arts programs at the school during the event. The Visual Arts, Dance, Band, Orchestra, and Chorus all participate in celebration and demonstration. The theme for the Fine Arts productions this year was "A Million Dreams" from the movie The Greatest Showman as inspiration.

Peachtree Ridge is proud to recognize that two outstanding students have made it into the National Association For Music Eduction's National Honor Ensembles. Emily Kim (sophomore, left) will be performing with the National Honor Band, and Joelle Choi (junior,right) will be performing with the National Honor Choir for her second consecutive year. These ladies spent the last school year working to make it into our All-State Ensembles, which then made them eligible to apply and audition for the National Honor Ensembles. They will travel to Orlando in November to study under the direction of nationally recognized conductors. We are thrilled over their accomplishments and are excited to have them represent Peachtree Ridge and Gwinnett County Public Schools on the National Stage.
