Like the PTA/PTSA and Local School Council groups in each school, we are focused on raising the bar for student success and achievement. We differ, however, in that we are focused on all schools at one time, have the ability to raise money outside of traditional school fundraisers, and are building a permanent endowment fund for the cluster.
Our goal is to foster student success. We do this by providing enrichment tools and academic support to the outstanding educators in all six of our schools. Our teachers use vertical team teaching techniques and collaborative planning to bring about high levels of learning and achievement in the classroom – supporting the individual capabilities and unique learning styles of each student. The grants we fund foster this spirit, allowing "outside of the box" teaching methods that enable our cluster to be one of the most successful in the state.
The North Gwinnett Schools Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to funding grants and providing administration for various scholarships that benefit the students of the North Gwinnett cluster.
The Foundation is made up of parents, grandparents, educators, community leaders, and business partners who are working to support the efforts of teachers who are passionate about giving every student the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential.
Founded in 2001 by a group of like-minded community leaders, educators, business partners, and parents, the North Gwinnett Schools Foundation, or NGSF, is the "education booster club" for the six schools of the North Gwinnett Cluster, part of Gwinnett County Public Schools in the state of Georgia.
We don't just use catch phrases like "academic achievement," "student success," and "maximizing student potential," we fulfill grants in our schools that allow them to be a reality. We are working together to ensure the individual success of every student in our cluster.
