• We offer great choices because our students can do great things.

    Choice is about more than selecting a school. It’s about having the confidence to design the future — and go for it. 

  • What will you do with your choice?

    Make discoveries in the lab. Shine on stage. Explore a booming tech field. Earn college credit. Fly a plane. Get a nursing degree. Pursue marketing, drone technology or cybersecurity. The list goes on and on. GCS gives you the freedom to choose, and that’s why we’re a national leader in educational choice, offering dozens of personalized academic pathways and hundreds of extracurriculars. No other educational option provides the same breadth of innovative programming. And we’re proud to have the Number 1 High School in the nation — The Early College at Guilford.


    Nothing beats the list of extra-curriculars you can access in a public school.

    Student government. All kinds of athletics. Marching band. ROTC. Service and leadership opportunities. And of course tons of clubs — including all the organizations our students create. Anime. Badminton. Film Club. Chess. Campus Cleanup. If you can imagine it, chances are we’ve got it at GCS. We want you to try all kinds of activities and have fun exploring. That’s what makes our graduates well-rounded and ready to create the world they want to live in. 


    We're reimagining school buildings to be schools of the future.

    With a district as large as ours, we have all kinds of schools and facilities. We’re proud to offer many state-of-the-art spaces and resources for learning. Are you interested in pharmacy tech or biomedical technology? Go see what we have to offer at The Academy at Smith.  Want to build and fly a drone? Check out the technology at Western Guilford. Are you destined for the stage or screen? Weaver Academy is a performing arts focused school while our Notes for Notes program at Penn-Griffin offers professional recording studios where you can record original music. This is just the beginning for GCS, and for you.
