What We Mean by Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are core concepts that operate in relation to each other.

Diversity: The broad set of visible and invisible dimensions encompassing all the ways in which people, processes and perspectives differ within the FCS family.

Equity: The result of ensuring each individual has what they need
includes identifying and removing personal and systemic barriers that limit the full participation of all individuals and groups.

Inclusion: The active process of welcoming, respecting, supporting, connecting and valuing while acknowledging the uniqueness or identity of all FCS family members.


Thank you for your interest in Forsyth County Schools! We believe that school-community partnerships are essential to student success. Therefore, we welcome the opportunity to partner with colleges and universities in preparing the next generation of educators. By establishing excellent relationships with local teacher preparation programs, we hope to positively impact the student teaching experience and create opportunities for new teachers to succeed.

About Us

As the 6th largest district in Georgia, Forsyth County Schools serves 50,800+ students representing 124 countries and 52 languages. In the past decade, we have grown 56%! We are home to 41 schools – 22 elementary, 11 middle, and 8 high, and will open New Hope Elementary school by July 2022.

One of the many things that make FCS special is that even with our growth, we still maintain a small-town feel and form connections that go beyond the walls of our schools. As the nation’s 6th fastest growing county from 2010 – 2020, Forsyth County’s growth and increasing diversity have had a positive impact on our schools, as highly motivated students come to our classrooms locally and from all over the world. The fastest-growing population is Asian students at 27%; the student population is also comprised of White 50%, Hispanic 14%, Black or African American 5%, Two or more races 4%, American Indian or Alaska Native and Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, which are both under 1%.
