Relationships between community and schools are crucial to public school success.

During the 2017 Education Summit, more than 200 community and business leaders took time to meet at one of several schools across the district to start building and strengthening ties between community and our public schools. Host schools gave visitors a unique glimpse into what daily life at a public school entails—the challenges and the opportunities.

GCS schools that hosted visitors were:

  • Academy at Lincoln
  • Andrews High
  • Ayock Middle (now Swann Middle)
  • Brooks Global Elementary
  • Dudley High
  • Ferndale Middle
  • General Greene Elementary
