Gordon County School System is a rural, K-12 school district located approximately halfway between Chattanooga, Tenn., and Atlanta — it’s the last rural school district between two large cities. The district consists of two high schools, two middle schools, and five elementary schools located in the northwest corner of Georgia. The system serves approximately 7,000 students and offers a wide variety of course offerings supplemented with strong emphasis in technology and quality teaching.
In recent years, Gordon County has received numerous honors and awards from The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement and the Georgia Department of Education. One high school received the Platinum Award for Greatest Gain of Students Meeting and Exceeding the Standards. Four elementary schools received the Distinguished School Award for making Adequate Yearly Progress for three or more years.
Every classroom is a standards-based classroom with 21st century technologies for quality teaching. The goal of the school system is to challenge all students in a nurturing and caring environment.
