About Forsyth County:
As the nation's 11th fastest growing county, Forsyth County's growth and increasing cultural diversity have had a positive impact on our schools. Highly motivated students come to our classrooms locally and from all over the world. Our students bring with them support from home and an excitement that keeps teaching fresh and new.
Besides being only 30 miles from Atlanta, Forsyth County is also just minutes from the Blue Ridge Mountains and is nestled alongside Lake Lanier, a favorite recreational venue. Numerous world-class parks, recreational and cultural activities, as well as well designed green space and health care services, are available for all ages.
Our thriving local economy features countless retail centers and Forsyth County's first mall, The Collection Forsyth. Additionally, the county is only twenty minutes away from three major shopping malls. Lanier Technical College and North Georgia University are located in Forsyth County. Over a dozen colleges and universities are also less than one hour from the county. A variety of housing options are available, from apartments to townhouses, to planned subdivisions and country living.
Located along Georgia’s “Technology Corridor” of Georgia Highway 400, the economic profile of Forsyth County is quite diverse, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses opened by local entrepreneurs who saw a market for their product or service. Close enough to the city, yet still small enough to know your neighbors and enjoy the fresh air of the country, Forsyth County is a great place to live, to raise a family and educate your children.
About Forsyth County School District:
Our school district’s history started in 1873 when field schools, log buildings built in cleared fields, were consolidated into one public district. In 1874 Forsyth County Schools (FCS) had 1,456 students in 32 schools. As of May 2017, FCS serves over 46,555 students and is the largest employer in the county with over 5,072 staff members. Since 2001, the district has grown 170% in terms of student population and built 21 new schools. FCS is the 7th largest out of 180 school districts in Georgia.
We are home to 37 schools – 21 elementary, 10 middle, 6 high, and 1 virtual 6-12 school. In 2016-17, Brandywine ES and DeSana MS opened and many existing schools across the county received additions and renovations, including all high schools. Denmark High School and the Alliance Academy for Innovation, a college and career high school, will open in 2018. Our history is very important to our district, and we have named many of our new schools after former field schools, and local and school leaders.
