Lanier High School recently hosted its first Decision Day to celebrate seniors and their postsecondary decisions.
The event highlighted seniors who have committed to a plan after high school. Students were recognized for choosing to enroll in technical programs, apprenticeships, private colleges and public universities. Students were also honored for their decisions to enter the workforce or enlist in the military.
Buford High School led a list of 13 Gwinnett County Public Schools that were recently recognized for getting students enrolled in — and having the students remain in — college.
Buford's GreatSchools.org rating was 10/10, one of three schools in the state with such a rating. The high school was followed by four Gwinnett schools with scores of 9/10, four with 8/10 and four more with 7/10.

The legendary Alabama football coach has six national championship rings, but he couldn’t match the bling of one of the inductees.
Gwinnett County Public Schools had 21 high schools ranked in U.S. News & World Report's 2019 "Best High School Rankings," including the No. 6 public school in the country — Gwinnett School of Math, Science in Technology.
GSMST was ranked the No. 1 school in Georgia and the No. 21 STEM School in the country.
Discovery High School’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps Leadership Team is the only team from Gwinnett County Public Schools and one of 40 in the nation that will compete in the 2019 U.S. Army JROTC Leadership Bowl Championship in Washington, D.C.
The team — composed of team members Rossy Dang, Christina Le, Sydney Hughes and Daniel Patino, as well as alternates Darhan Amundson and Gustavo Lopez — qualified for the competition after advancing through two phases of online competition. The event will be held June 21 to 15 on the campus of The Catholic University of America.
Brookwood High School science teacher Carrie Settles Livers’ classroom doubles as a kind of lab.
To someone unfamiliar with aquaponics, it would take a while to actually figure out what function the contraption in the back of her classroom serves. There are a couple of shelves with plants underneath lamps. Two 480-gallon fish tanks with about a dozen goldfish swimming inside are connected to two 4-by-16-foot water beds by PVC pipes.
