Norcross High School

5300 Spalding Drive
Norcross, GA 30092


Norcross High School opened a beautiful 440,000 square foot facility at 5300 Spalding Drive, Norcross, Georgia in August of 2001. This land was purchased for the school by the Gwinnett County Public School System after a devastating tornado in 1990 cleared the land of hundreds of trees. The new building opened with a student population of 2400 students who live in the attendance areas with the borders of Peachtree Corners on the west to Beaver Ruin and I-85 on the east. Norcross High School began offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate program in 1999 and this highly rigorous curriculum now serves over one-third of the student population. Norcross High School has a rich and long history dating back to 1827. The extremely successful alumni including Norcross Mayor Lillian Webb, are the pride of the school.

Before moving to its new location on Spalding drive, Norcross High was located at 600 Beaver Ruin Road in 1957. At that time the school was called West Gwinnett High School. In 1962, the name was changed back to Norcross High School. Norcross was named after Johnathan Norcross, a friend of the founder of the town, John Thrasher.
