Central gwinnett high school is the best. All the teachers care about us and are education. Are principle is all about making are school a great school and it is a great school. The students there all care about there education and want to do better. Also are principle is working hard everyday to make the school a safe place most of all the students and staff to feel safe. Yes we do have some problems in are school but so does every other school to. But we black Knights work together to solve the problems that we have. So I am proud to say I am a central gwinnett highs school student and a black knight always will be. Hope most of the parents find this helpful thank you.

My granddaughter is being bully by low life boys who are lsexuality harassing in class and nothing done about it. My granddaughter is an honor student and I am afraid foofr her because of what she has to deal with everyday. This boys are dangerous and one is out of jail. The school better do something or we are taking her out of the school.

As an alumni, the school is great if you are AP or Honors classes. If you are not, your screwed. The kids in AP and Honors classes tend to stick together even in the lunch room. The values and interests of the students in College Prep classes are completely different.

I have 7 children and they attended Central Gwinnett 6 years ago. I am a single parent and I have a MASTER'S Degree in EDUCATION. I see Central Gwinnett hasn't changed much since it moved out the district. I had the same issues as the April 24th comment. I had to go to my daughter school because she had to use a friends phone to call me because Teacher/ Administrator wouldn't address a bullying issue. Eventually, the girl followed her after school with another group and she attacked my daughter. They both were put out of school. My daughter was an Honor a Student. She had another incident in Middle School where a young man slapped her out her seat and she fought back and got detention. So because of the previous incident she had to attend Give East. If I could home school I would. Teachers have a negative mindset about children/families so this doesn't help. The better schools you have to deal with racism. The most important thing is parents talk to your children and make phone calls and send emails often if you can't make it to the school on a regular basis. Good Luck.

I would like to respond to the April 24th, 2014 commenter. How is commenting about the students and parents of the school going to benefit the school as a whole. The teachers and staff cannot control who they teach. We can only do the best with what is given to us. Instead of openly criticizing, why dont you volunteer at the school as a parent and help us change the culture? Teachers and Administrators cannot do it on our own. Every school has these problems you mention. Yes, even the sacred cow known as Brookwood High School has issues with gangs, drugs, and fights. Be a parent at the school, support the teachers and you can be a part of the catalyst to turn the tide against the very items you openly criticize us for.

The downfall of this school is that the majority of students come from low income homes, and they dont push education on their children. This school also has a high rate of fights, gang activity and lots of drugs, not a place for upper middle class students, Brookwood is another world compared to Central.

If you are a prospective teacher considering working at Central Gwinnett, trust me....don't. Teachers can't get out of here fast enough. It's like trying to escape off a sinking ship.

Some of the assistant principals who were hired last school year are poor leaders. They lack social skills. A Doctorate does not mean anything if you do not how to treat employees fairly and respectfully.

CGHS is a great school - the teachers have been extremely helpful and responsive to my student this year. Thanks for making the 9th grade experience a really good one!
