GSMST Lottery Qualifiers

  • The GSMST lottery application is open to all eighth-grade students who meet all three criteria below:

    1. My child has custodial residency within Gwinnett County (but outside the city limits of Buford), Georgia.
    2. My child is currently in 8th grade and is expected to be promoted to 9th grade by June 1, 2020.
    3. My child is currently enrolled in a math curriculum that is considered the equivalent of Carnegie-eligible Accelerated Algebra or higher.
      –OR–
      I understand that if my child is taking Carnegie-eligible (non-Accelerated) Algebra this year, their lottery number will remain valid only if they earn a first semester grade of 90 or higher and they score in the distinguished category on the End-of-Course Test (in May 2020) –OR– they earn a score of 550 or higher on the math component of the PSAT 8/9 or SAT. (The test must be taken no later than 1/24/20.)
