David Strickland, Community School Director


John Mize, Community School Clerk


The goal of the GCPS Community School program is to extend education and recreation to the community. The Community School is an extension of North Gwinnett High School and reaches out as a basic learning center to meet the various continuing education needs of our community. We strive to serve as a creative, quality community environment committed to developing and providing programs of academic and recreational enrichment for all members of our community.

We offer after hours classes such as Driver Education, SAT Prep classes, and Babysitting Certification among others. We are always seeking input and suggestions for new Community School classes, so please let us know what you are interested in.

We also offer the community the ability to rent the facilities at the High School and our cluster schools (North Gwinnett Middle School, and Riverside, Level Creek, Suwanee and Roberts Elementary Schools).

Please let us know how we can help you with your event!

Please contact the Community School for a GCPS Fee Schedule for Facility Rentals.
