School History

School History
Norcross High School opened a beautiful 440,000 square foot facility at 5300 Spalding Drive in August of 2001. This land was purchased for the school by the Gwinnett County public school system after a devastating tornado in 1990 cleared the land of hundreds of trees. The new building opened with a student population of 2,400 students who live in the attendance area bordered by Peachtree Corners on the west and Beaver Ruin and I-85 on the east.

Norcross High School began offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate program in 1999 and this highly rigorous curriculum now serves over one-third of the student population. Norcross High School has a rich and long history dating back to 1827. Extremely successful alumni, including Norcross Mayor Lillian Webb, are the pride of the school.
