GCPS holds ribbon-cutting for new Phoenix High at Sugarloaf Mills program

Fernado Ruiz Martinez stepped to the microphone Thursday with a smile beaming across his face. It was the look of hope and opportunity he shared along with 96 other students enrolled at Gwinnett County Public Schools’ Phoenix High at Sugarloaf Mills.

Phoenix High at Sugarloaf Mills is an extension of GCPS Phoenix High located in Lawrenceville at 501 W. Pike St. The program is designed to provide a non-traditional high school setting and offer unique work-based learning options.
