About Our Programs

  • Who Are We?

    The Forsyth County Education is an opportunity for the community to partner with Forsyth County Schools (FCS) to foster innovation for increased student achievement by unifying resources not ordinarily provided by the district’s operating budget. As the 5th largest district in Georgia, FCS serves 53,500+ students representing 129 countries and 64 languages. Since 2010, FCS has grown 43% and is home to 42 schools – 23 elementary, 11 middle, 7 high, and 1 college and career high school. 

    What Do We Do?
