GCS Choice Showcase Returns with New Programs, New Time


March 8, 2019 – A new date and time, a new kindergarten experience and new opportunities for high school students mark the 2019 GCS Choice Showcase, happening Wednesday, March 13, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. The event and parking are free.

Rising ninth-graders will be the first to apply for six new signature academies that emphasize career and technical education opportunities that are in high demand by local companies.

The district’s JROTC programs will be included in this year’s showcase, as well as a new kindergarten experience for students and parents, designed to help incoming kindergarteners feel more comfortable getting on a bus and going through a cafeteria line.

GCS offers more than 50 magnet and choice programs from pre-kindergarten to high school. Click here to learn more about the great choices for students in GCS. The magnet application window is open from March 13 to April 5.
