Welcome to Guilford County Schools

  • graduate shaking hands with board member Guilford County Schools is known across North Carolina and the United States as an example of what’s working in public education. We are proud of our staff, students, families and community. From the first day of kindergarten through graduation day, we are focused on our mission:

    Guilford County students will graduate as responsible citizens prepared to succeed in higher education, or in the career of their choice. 

    Our students' and employees' hard work and dedication to educational excellence have propelled GCS to the top, leading to state and national recognition in academics, character education, athletics and technology. 

    In addition, GCS was named a Say Yes to Education Community. Thanks to the support of the community, Say Yes Guilford offers the opportunity for eligible GCS graduates to attend college, beginning with the Class of 2016. Awarding last-dollar tuition scholarships, Say Yes Guilford will also offer a range of supports and services while students are in elementary, middle and high school.
