Safe Schools

Everyone in our schools deserves to go to school without any fear for their safety. It is important to promote and support a safe learning environment, so that our children can learn the necessary social and economic skill sets required to succeed at the next level.

Quality Education

A quality education starts in the home. Gwinnett County has a population of nearly a million wonderful people. We live in a growing county with a bright economic future. Developments such as Rowen will serve as an anchor to District 1 and provide endless quality educational opportunities right here in our backyard.  


Children deserve to grow up in a community that supports, empowers, and makes them feel wanted. When kids receive the care and support they need, they will grow up to become reliable individuals that can contribute to our community. It is important that we work with our area park associations, churches, and county resources.
