Downtown Norcross is filled with restored brick buildings lit by old-fashioned street lamps, unique antique shops, and popular restaurants. The city’s beautiful parks sit among winding sidewalks including Betty Mauldin Park, home to the largest American elm in the state of Georgia, over 100 years old. The Forum on Peachtree Parkway is a great place for shopping and offers an elite collection of merchants, gathered in a beautifully unique, European-influenced outdoor mall.

The IB Middle Years Program is offered in conjunction with Summerour Middle School.
