About PTA

Area 1 Gwinnett Council of PTAs includes local PTA/PTSA units in the following school clusters: Brookwood, Meadowcreek, Parkview, Shiloh, and South Gwinnett.

What is PTA?

Membership is open to anyone who believes in the Mission and Purposes of National Parent Teacher Association. Individual members may belong to any number of PTAs and pay dues in each. Every person who joins a local PTA automatically becomes a member of both the state and National PTAs.

Together we are a powerful voice for children.

With your help, we can continue to work toward PTA’s goal of a quality education and nurturing environment for every child.
