GWINNETT SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, AND TECHNOLOGY (GSMST)
The Mission of Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology (GSMST) is to nurture the talents and high potential of all students through a unique, challenging, and integrated curriculum with a focus on mathematics, science, and technology that will result in a world-class education. At GSMST, a student will discover a school that fosters the development of a life-long learner through the use of a unique curriculum, relevance, and relationships.
The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology offers students an opportunity to study in three broad areas of focus: bioscience, engineering, and emerging technologies. These three key pillars mirror emerging career areas in Gwinnett. GSMST is immersed in developing partnerships and initiatives with business and industry, higher education, and the public school system. Our curriculum will situate our students to compete in today's global market and allow them to pursue infinite opportunities in the future.
GSMST was certified as a STEM school by the Georgia Department of Education in the fall of 2012. GSMST is a lottery-based charter high school (grades 9-12) that focuses on STEM education for every student. In addition to high-level math and science courses for all students, the school requires intensive business/industry internships of all juniors that result in a senior capstone project. The school partners with local STEM businesses and industries to create opportunities for student exposure to the world beyond high school and post-secondary education. It is these opportunities that provide the underpinning for student success in their graduates. Teachers at GSMST have created integrated courses and students also enjoy art, music, broadcast video engineering space, and access to equipment that allows students to conduct literary discussions with other schools as far away as Mexico, India, and China.
GSMST sponsors activities and clubs that promote the arts, some of which they offer as elective classes, such as Literary Magazine. Students can choose to participate in other groups, including Art and Design Club, Tri-M Music Honor Society, and Readers Rally.
