Guilford County Schools recognizes that all children learn differently. To that end, we've developed a variety of options to give students the best education possible, regardless of their needs.
Our mission is to make sure every student succeeds in whatever path they choose, and specialized programs give them an edge for the future.
- To inspire our students' passions, our district offers 18 magnet schools augmenting the regular comprehensive curricula with themes or studies such as: communications, cultural arts, math/science, foreign language, two year-round schools, two extended-year schools and three Montessori schools. GCS is a nationwide leader in magnet school programs.
- High school options, including nine early/middle college high schools located on local college campuses, offer students an alternative to the traditional high school setting. Other high school options include the district's early college academy schools/programs, which offer students the opportunity to gain college credit while in their senior year of a traditional high school and a chance to qualify for a three-year scholarship upon graduation.
- GCS has four International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma programs, an award-winning tech prep program and Weaver Academy, an advanced academics, performing arts and vocational technical school.
