Our School

At North Cobb, we believe a student’s success in life is dependent upon more than just his grades. To become truly “educated,” we believe students must recognize and develop their intellect, their talents, and their aspirations.

We are deeply focused on 21st century academics and offer a variety of curricular and extracurricular options for students. Our students enjoy advanced placement courses, NJROTC, fine arts, career and technical education courses, world languages, nationally recognized clubs, and athletics.

International Skills

We are pleased to offer students at North Cobb opportunities to develop international skills that increase their global competency both in the workplace and at university. 

The Georgia Department of Education recently chose North Cobb as an International Skills Diploma School. This allows us to confer a special International Skills Diploma on students who take four world language courses, a selection of internationally oriented science and social studies courses, and participate in international activities and a capstone project.

Each student is responsible for meeting the college entrance requirements, including application fees.
