The Norcross Cluster is not complete with all the schools. Missing are two elementary and one middle school

Greta: You are correct, but we only listed the schools that Peachtree Corners residents attend since our readers for the most part are residents of the city.

Are those numbers correct? PE has over 1700 students?
Judy Putnam August 08, 2012 at 01:43 PM
PTC Concerns: The number is the projected number that GCPS expects to enroll. Last year the forecast was 1677 but the final number reported by the school system (shortly after Labor Day) was 1597.

RE: Peachtree Elementary - I am a parent active in school council and PTA. School enrollment for 2011 has been published at 1655 and 1635 on GCPS and Georgia School Council websites. Not sure what the actual was, but I do know it was mid 1600s and does fluctuate throughout the year (Peachtree is not a single-family homes school - lots of apartments). And yes, projected for this year is around 1700. The administration, faculty and staff do a wonderful job running the school efficiently, but it is overcrowded and needs some relief.
