Grossmont Resource Center (GRC)

The Grossmont Resource Center (GRC) is a program at Grossmont High School that reaches out to meet the personal and social needs of our students and families. It is a collaborative effort between the community and our school to provide direct services on campus that will enhance the opportunity for students to achieve academic, social and personal success. The GRC is also a place where parents, students, and staff can obtain information and referrals for problems that are not normally handled by the school or our partners.  The GRC is located in the main office building.
Some of the offerings available in the GRC:

Check your Mood Weeks at GHS

Grossmont High School partners with San Diego Youth Services each fall to offer “Check Your Mood” to all 9th & 11th graders. This program focuses on educating youth and their families about depression and reducing the stigma around seeking help for mental health issues.  SDYS presents curriculum in classrooms, staffs an informational table at lunch, and provides additional support for students that express interest and/or need. Parent awareness is integral to the success of this program. Please click these links for additional information:  SDYS Here Now website and powerpoint presentation for parents.  Please click here for a passive parent permission slip.  Please return the bottom portion to the GRC only if you DO NOT want your student to participate.
