  • Gifted Education

    Gifted Education

    The Gwinnett County Public Schools gifted education program serves students by providing academic challenges for those who are intellectually advanced. Peachtree Ridge offers gifted classes in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Directed Studies, and the Quest Internship Program. Students who have been tested and have met eligibility criteria in elementary, middle or high school in Gwinnett County or in another Georgia school system are eligible to take gifted classes at PRHS.

    A student may be referred by a teacher, a counselor, or a parent for gifted testing. When a student is referred, he/she is placed in the referral process by submitting a portfolio to the Referral Committee. The next step is an official referral to be tested. Georgia Department of Education eligibility standards requires that a student meets the criteria in three of four areas: mental ability, achievement, creativity, and motivation. A number of assessment instruments are used in this process.

  • Advanced Placement

    Advanced Placement

    Advanced Placement courses are college-level classes taught at PRHS by PRHS teachers with additional training and certification. Research has shown that students who participate in AP courses outperform others in college, particularly in grades and graduation rates. PRHS believes that all students deserve access to the rigor of advanced coursework and can be successful with the appropriate support.

    Advanced Placement coursework requires students to complete in-depth reading and writing assignments; research and study outside of class time to analyze the material covered in the course; to work independently and push him/herself academically and intellectually; and to engage in the study of subject matter beyond just learning facts –focusing on the analysis and the synthesis of material.
