Admissions and Lottery Information

2018-2019 School Year


The lottery application process for the 2018-2019 school year is now open.

GSMST is a public high school within the Gwinnett County Public Schools system. Current 8th grade students who meet all eligibility requirements may apply for a lottery number. To assist families in their decision about whether to apply for the lottery or not, GSMST will hold three parent information sessions. These information sessions are for parents and 8th grade students only and the dates are listed below. The sessions are broken down by cluster attendance zone as shown. The lottery process is NOT first come, first served. A lottery number issued in late January has the same statistical chance of being drawn as a lottery number issued in early November. We encourage all families to attend a parent information session before securing a lottery number. The information presented and the questions that are answered can help families make an informed decision for their student.

Below are the dates for the three Informational Meetings that provide information to students/parents interested in attending GSMST.  The information presented will be the same at all three meetings, and all meetings are at the GSMST campus at 7:00 PM.
