Non-Profit CARE Team Academic, Arts, Athletics Assistance Program
The Norcross High School Foundation of Excellence organization plays a pivotal role in generating the funds and resources necessary to provide the level of excellence and education desired for ALL students at NHS.
NHS is a Title1 school and offers the International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme curriculum. Our school’s population is diverse: approximately 50 percent of students are Hispanic, over 25 percent of students are African American, 15 percent of students are White, and nearly 10 percent of students are Asian. Two-third of these students qualify for free and reduced lunch. It is estimated that over 35 different languages are spoken at home.
Our Vision is every student at NHS will be prepared to excel in college, career, and life.
Providing Quality and Affordable healthcare and dental services
The Good Samaritan Health Centers of Gwinnett offers general medical and dental services for the poor and uninsured. Good Sam aims to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all of our patients. Good Sam has two locations providing quality and affordable primary healthcare, medications, and dental services in both West Gwinnett and East Gwinnett. Good Sam is the only safety-net clinic in the area offering medical, dental, counseling and pharmacy services under one roof.
Good Sam is not a free clinic, urgent care or emergency care facility. Good Sam sees patients by appointments and as walk-ins. Services are designed to be affordable for the uninsured and underinsured.
Breaking the cycle of homelessness, poverty and domestic violence
We guide homeless families toward self-sufficiency by providing housing, empowerment training and family support that helps them regain and sustain permanent housing and stability.
