We are glad you're interested in joining Forsyth County Schools' family in fulfilling our mission. Each and every FCS employee is dedicated to preparing and inspiring all students to contribute and excel. To work at FCS is not simply a career, it's a passion. It requires a wholehearted belief in providing "quality learning and superior performance for all", not just for our students, but for our staff and community.
Commitment to Excellence
All members of the FCS family play a crucial role in our work. In FCS we are a team - the Board, students, staff, parents and community. We are committed to excellence and becoming the most effective school district in the nation.
Work environment plays a vital role in job satisfaction. It's no small advantage to work with people you can respect, and our staff are distinguished by their uncommon dedication to teaching, inside and outside the classroom.
Despite the downturn in the economy, our school system is still growing. We are now home to 34 schools, all of which have been funded by a progressive community that supports quality education for all students. Our community has approved numerous bond and 1% sales tax referendums to construct new schools and keep our older schools up to the same standards as newer schools. Also, these funds have purchased land for new schools, provided internationally recognized technology, such as our interactive whiteboards in every classroom (largest installation in the world), as well as safety upgrades and new buses.
As one of the nation's top 10 fastest growing communities, 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 Avenue Forsyth. Additionally, the county is only twenty minutes away from three major shopping malls. Lanier Technical College and North Georgia State College and University's MBA program 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.
