It’s hard to really put into words what it means to be home. Some say home is where your story begins or that it’s a place made of hopes and dreams. Others say it’s not a place, but rather a feeling. No matter how you describe it, we have a feeling that you will find your professional home in Gwinnett County Public Schools. As the largest school district in Georgia, we offer an abundance of career opportunities, and people choose GCPS as their home for many reasons. Here are a few…


One of the nation’s best employers

GCPS has been named “One of America’s Best Employers” and a “Best Employer for Women” by Forbes Magazine, one of the “Top 25 Best Places to Work” by Gwinnett Magazine, and a “Top 25 Employer” by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. And, the National Council on Teacher Quality, a national leader on teacher issues, honored GCPS in its Great Districts for Great Teachers initiative. These accolades are the result of many factors, including a competitive compensation system, robust benefits, and a culture of strong support. Also, unlike some districts, GCPS pays its teachers year-round, making it easier to manage your budget and thoroughly enjoy your summer break. 


Commitment to diversity

Gwinnett County is home to a diverse population and our student enrollment reflects that diversity. GCPS embraces and celebrates its various cultures and backgrounds, uniting around one goal: to prepare all students for success. In order to find the best teaching candidates and recruit a high-quality staff reflective of our community, we visit colleges across the country, partner with many Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and host bilingual career events.
