Excellence for All

After School Program
  • Meet the Principal   



    Dear Magill ES Families,


    Welcome to Magill Elementary School where we strive for excellence for all learners! At our school, we pride ourselves on maintaining high expectations for achievement while focusing on the individual needs of each student. We have dedicated teachers who ensure our students benefit from engaging lessons that encourage our scholars to think critically and solve real-world problems. Every member of the school community works to provide our students with an environment conducive to teaching and learning.


    As you know, home-school communication is vital to building success at school. I welcome your support in strengthening the home-school connection and encourage you to get involved in your children’s education. Feel free to use your child’s agenda books and Friday Folders to communicate with the teacher. Use this website to find general information about our school including calendars, enrollment information, our PTA, student clubs, and more. Please visit our Parent Center for information about volunteering at our school. The Parent Center also has materials you can check out to practice academic skills with your children at home.


    Since you are our partners in education, we will work together to educate and nurture our children. We will help them SOAR to their fullest potential academically, socially, and emotionally.


    Let's have an amazing year!


    Yours in partnership,

    Guerlène Merisme

    Dr. Guerlène Merisme, Principal

    Testing for Lead in Water

    In December 2023, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) began participating in the Georgia Department of Education’s statewide “Clean Water for Georgia Kids” program. This program tests all drinking and cooking water taps in schools for lead. Testing began in January 2024 and is scheduled to continue through July. Elementary schools were tested first before moving to middle and high schools.

    To be clear, GCPS has no evidence of a widespread problem with the water quality in any school or building. This testing is a proactive measure to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, parents, and community.

    According to EPA guidelines, if any test shows lead is present at 15 parts per billion or higher, we will turn off the fixture’s water supply and immediately take action to fix the problem. The fixture will only be used again after a follow-up test confirms the water is safe to drink.

    In accordance with our commitment to transparency, test results for each and every school will be available on the Clean Water for Georgia Kids Website.

    For more information about our testing program, including the schedule, process, frequently asked questions, and test results, visit the GCPS website, click on Schools, and look for “Testing for Lead in Water.”

    Thank you for your continued support of our schools.
