Our History

Norcross High School Foundation for Excellence began with a generous gift from MR. PAUL DUKE, DEVELOPER OF TECHNOLOGY PARK in Norcross, GA. Since its inception, the Foundation has received donations from hundreds of families, businesses and community supporters to help fund key programs, capital improvements and initiatives.

The Norcross High School Foundation for Excellence (NHSFE) is a 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds in support of Norcross High School.  We help bridge the gap between state and county funding, and play a pivotal role in generating the funds and resources necessary to provide the level of excellence and education desired for ALL students at NHS.

Norcross High School is one of the largest schools in Georgia. NHS is a Title I school and offers the International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme curriculum. Our school’s population is diverse: approximately 52 percent of students are Hispanic, over 28 percent of students are African American, 13 percent of students are White, nearly 4 percent of students are Asian, and 3 percent identify as Other. Two-third of these students qualify for free and reduced lunch. It is estimated that over 35 different languages are spoken at home.
