Naceur, who attended Lanier High School last year as a freshman, is now a sophomore at Gwinnett Online Campus. It gives him the flexibility to fill his day with vocal lessons, dance lessons, practicing piano and guitar and a few recording sessions. He goes on campus once per week but otherwise submits homework remotely.
“It was not necessarily the material or teacher or anything else, it was just time,” Naceur said.
