Finding a great place to work is great, but when you discover a great place to work and live that fits both your and your family’s needs, that’s extraordinary. However, that has been true of our district for years—and it’s only getting better.

Affordable Living – Despite being one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation, according to the Economic Policy Institute, Gwinnett is still one of the most affordable places to live in Georgia. Although you have easy access to Atlanta and all of its attractions, when it comes to cost of living, your dollar goes much further in Gwinnett than it would in the city.

That’s Entertainment – Whether it’s sports, outdoor activities, world-class shopping and dining, or live concerts, Gwinnett has it all. For example, Infinite Energy Arena hosts some of the biggest names in music, professional hockey and lacrosse, and much more. Maybe you’re more of an outdoor enthusiast. We have that too! In fact, Gwinnett features nearly 10,000 acres of parkland.

Diversity is Our Strength – We are proud to say that Gwinnett is the most diverse county in the Southeast. Our international community is reflected not only in our student body but also in our staff. It’s incredible to see people from various backgrounds and cultures unite with a common goal: to help our students reach their full potential and prepare them for future success.

Award-Winning Employer – GCPS has been named ‘One of America’s Best Employers’ by Forbes Magazine and one of ’Top 25 Best Places to Work’ by Gwinnett Magazine. These accolades are the result of many factors including a culture of strong support and professional development, performance-based compensation, outstanding benefits, and much more.

We have much more to share. This blog barely scratches the surface of all that GCPS and Gwinnett County have to offer you and your family.
