Peter Emmet

Our Head of School has over 15 years experience teaching and leading in independent schools. He has an undergraduate degree from Harvard University in French and Italian and a Master’s degree in independent school leadership from the Klingenstein Center at Columbia University. His teaching focus has been in language and literature in French and English.

Peter’s experience learning French in 8th grade opened him up to the possibilities for deeper engagement with people, history and culture that learning a new language provides.


In the day-in and day-out interactions with students, teachers and administrators, our founders began to believe that there could be a new kind of school - that there needs to be a new kind of school. There is a need for a true community school, in which students, families and teachers are joined by local businesses, nonprofits and volunteers, to cultivate the next generation. What if a school could be a garden where young people grow within innovative, evidence-based practices and proven teaching methodologies in a way that connects them to rich opportunity and a dynamic network they would otherwise not have access to.

And so the idea of Gwinnett Global School was born. Taking Gwinnett’s diverse, multilingual community of students and families and turning it into an asset, with a focus on developing bilingual, cross-culturally competent students, capable of creating bridges of connection, in order to lead, serve, and care for their communities.
