Norcross District and Curriculum
Norcross city students attend Gwinnett County Public Schools. Students follow a curriculum of Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) standards that prepare students for what they need to know and be able to do in the future. Parent resources are available to help extend student learning in the home. Visit the district website for an AKS booklet for your child’s grade level. Students also benefit from community service, character education, and extracurricular activities that coincide with their interests.
We currently cover the following Norcross-area school district: Gwinnett County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norcross District Curriculum
Academic Knowledge and Skills are aligned with Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS), standards implemented in many schools across the nation. At each grade level, AKS are integrated in many subject areas – language arts in grades K-12, with literacy standards integrated into science, social studies and technical education in the middle and high school, and within math in grades K-10.
The standards are also aligned with standardized achievement tests, ensuring students will be prepared for state-required tests, such as End-of-Grade or Course, K-8 competency tests, writing assessments in grades 3, 5, 8 and 11, and the ACT and SAT. Developed by educators and community members, AKS are real-world applicable and rigorous in the depth and content of student learning. Reviewed annually for possible changes, the AKS incorporate recommendations from school and community surveys in the upcoming school year, as approved by the superintendent.

Chalk Talk: Dual Language Programs
More schools are beginning to integrate a second language into the school day within student learning. Children moving from a different country into an American city are confronted with a language barrier. These children use their native language in the home, but when it comes to school, most learning is through the American language; a second, and maybe even challenging language, for them. The language barrier can then be an obstacle to their learning. Foreign language - speaking students can benefit from a Dual Immersion program. By integrating Spanish or French in the classroom, in subjects such as mathematics and science, schools are providing students with the skills they need to be better prepared for today’s society. If English is your second language, consider a Dual Immersion Program for your child. Give your child the ability to continue your native language in school to help them in their learning as well as maintain the language and culture you and your family come from.
