On Sunday, July 28, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., McClure Health Science High School invites incoming students to check out Gwinnett County Public Schools’ newest school. Called “Come Explore the Wonder,” the event will provide students and staff with the opportunity to roam the hallways of the new state-of-the-art facility, familiarizing themselves with their new school. Students will receive maps of the school and will have a chance to interact with some faculty and staff. In addition to this event, McClure Health Science High will host an “Open House” on Thursday, August 1, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. when students and parents can explore student schedules and meet teachers.
Principal Nicole Mosley is excited about the new school year and the opportunities that await students and teachers in this new learning community. She explains, “For the past six months we have been preparing for our school’s opening and we are excited to show our students and our school community this fantastic facility. We are doing much more than just opening the doors to a new school… through our programs and focus on health science we are opening doors to students’ futures.”
McClure Health Science High is named after Dr. Robert McClure, a former Gwinnett County Board of Education member and local physician. The school is a unique place where students will learn a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum through the lens of health science: combining coursework with practical experiences in a myriad of Health Science Fields. Program areas will include: Patient Care, Allied Health, Health Informatics, and Advanced Medicine. The school’s four-year program begins with seminar courses and culminates with capstone projects and internships.
McClure Health Science High School is opening as part the Meadowcreek Cluster, offering relief to Meadowcreek High School. In this first year, the school anticipates it will serve approximately 630 students.
