The mascot of Seckinger High School, the new campus in Gwinnett County set to open in August, will be the jaguar.

The school colors will be specific shades of black, blue and gray, Gwinnett County Public Schools recently announced.

The mascot and colors were chosen after Principal Memorie Reesman hosted focus groups to hear the community’s hopes for the new school, according to a news release.

Seckinger and its feeder schools will be the district’s first “themed cluster,” with lessons in artificial intelligence across the curriculum.

“Seckinger’s focus on artificial intelligence is uncommon, just like the black jaguar that will represent our school,” Reesman said in the news release.

Jones Middle School, which will feed into Seckinger, has a jaguar mascot.

Harmony, Ivy Creek and Patrick Elementary Schools will also feed into Seckinger. The new school is in unincorporated northern Gwinnett, east of Buford and Sugar Hill and west of Braselton. It will relieve crowding at Mill Creek, the largest high school in Georgia, and Mountain View High School.

Families who live in Seckinger’s zone, regardless of the age of their students, received letters last month notifying them of the school boundary changes.
