    Dear Seckinger School Community,

    I am writing to you today with a great deal of gratitude and excitement as I begin the process of transitioning into a different role within Seckinger High School. During the September 2023 Board Meeting, the Gwinnett County Board of Education approved my appointment as Principal of Seckinger High School; to succeed Ms. Reesman following her retirement in October 2023.

    Over the last two and a half years, I have had the privilege of serving this community alongside Ms. Reesman as an Assistant Principal. Those years have been an incredible journey filled with meaningful experiences as we launched Seckinger High School, the first Artificial Intelligence (AI) themed high school in the nation.

    The opportunity to lead Seckinger High School is both a tremendous responsibility and a great privilege. I want to assure you that my commitment to our students' well-being and academic success remains unwavering. We will continue to utilize “The Seckinger Standard” as a framework to guide us as we work to provide our students with the best possible educational experiences.

    I believe strongly in the power of collaboration and open communication. As we embark on this journey together, I invite all members of our school community; students, parents, guardians, teachers, and staff; to share your ideas, concerns, and aspirations. Your input is invaluable as we shape the future of Seckinger High School.

    My vision for our school is to ensure that every student feels valued, inspired, and supported to reach their full potential. We will continue to foster a positive and inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, and all voices are heard. Academic excellence and student wellbeing will remain at the forefront of our goals, and we will strive to equip our students with the AI upgraded lessons and the future ready skills needed to excel in a world that is continuously changing.

    I am eager to build upon the strong foundation established by Ms. Reesman and to work with our exceptional team of educators and staff to continue the work of building and protecting our brand. I want to express my deepest gratitude to each one of you and request your support, encouragement, and trust in my abilities to lead Seckinger High School.

    Once again, thank you for your trust and support. I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for the entire Seckinger community, and I am committed to leading our school community with dedication, integrity, and a focus on the success of every student.

    Warm regards,

    Jimmy Fisher

    Letter From Mr. Fisher

  • Where is Seckinger High School located?

    Seckinger High School (SHS) is located at 3655 Sardis Church Road in Buford.

  • Can you describe the student experience at SKG?

    Seckinger High School offers a collegiate learning atmosphere in which students can excel in academics, athletics, and the arts. Our students choose an area of concentration for their high school learning experience within three broad areas—advanced science and technology, business and leadership, and art and design—or they can choose a more personalized high school course of study.

  • Does Seckinger offer athletics?

    Yes. Seckinger offers a full athletics program. In addition, students are able to participate in extracurricular activities, fine arts, student associations, leadership opportunities, service organizations, and more.

  • I’ve heard that Seckinger is part of a “theme” cluster. What does that mean?

    The school district has a few theme schools, but imagine the possibilities if you expanded a theme beyond one school or one level, providing a K–12 focus on a theme! That is exactly what is happening in the new Seckinger Cluster, anchored by Seckinger High School. At high school, students are able to choose areas of focus within schools of study that focus on the humanities, international business, and advanced sciences and technology (with a focus on artificial intelligence, also called AI). Seckinger Cluster elementary schools and the middle school are preparing students for their high school experience by introducing AI and future-ready skills. Because of the cluster-wide, students are on a K–12 journey that focuses on preparing them to be globally prepared and competitive in a rapidly evolving, technology-rich world.

  • Why the focus on Artificial Intelligence?

    Today’s students are graduating into an ever-changing work landscape that harnesses emerging technologies. Seckinger High School and the focus on AI ensures that students are prepared for what’s ahead. Seckinger offers all students an opportunity to explore AI at levels to suit their level of interest.

  • Who attends Seckinger High School?

    The Gwinnett County Board of Education approved the attendance boundaries for Seckinger High School on Nov. 19, 2020. The approved changes created the new Seckinger High School Cluster by reassigning three existing elementary schools (Harmony, Ivy Creek, and Patrick) and Jones Middle School to form the feeder pattern for Seckinger High School. Residences that lie within these attendance boundaries are reassigned to the new Seckinger High School, beginning in August of 2022. Most students in the new cluster are coming from the Mill Creek Cluster, with some students from the Mountain View Cluster.

    Redistricting/Reassignment Update

  • Are there special features to the SKG campus?

    With a building capacity of 2,800, our campus includes expanded technology and engineering labs; three large lecture halls with adjoining labs and classroom space; collaboration rooms and spaces throughout the building; expanded art classrooms and graphic design lab; band, orchestra, chorus rooms, and MIDI lab; theatre and dance studio; and gymnasiums, athletic fields, and a stadium.

  • What are the school colors and mascot?

    Yes. As the hub of the district’s first theme cluster, Seckinger’s focus on artificial intelligence is uncommon… just like the black jaguar that represents our school. Feedback gathered during community focus groups guided the selection of the school colors—Pantone 312C Blue, Pantone 421 Gray, Pantone 423 Gray, and Pantone Black 6—and the jaguar as the mascot. Ironically, the jaguar was first selected as a symbol for a school in the new Seckinger Cluster in 2004 when Jones Middle School opened with the jaguar as its initial mascot. Seventeen years later, this rare, fierce animal was selected by focus group participants to represent the high school that will serve Jones Middle School students starting next school year. In addition to Jones, the other schools in the Seckinger Cluster are Harmony, Ivy Creek, and Patrick elementary schools.
