SUMMER BREAK AT GHS
Counselors are not available during the summer break. If you need a transcript, please click on Transcript Requests on the left side of this page. If you would like to register your student at GHS, please contact our Counseling Secretary at 619-668-6039. We look forward to meeting you and your family. Information regarding Freshman Orientation and other student prep days will be mailed home later in the summer. In the meantime, summer is a great time for students to enjoy giving back to their community through volunteer work, visit college campuses, talk to friends and family about their career and college experiences, read, and take a break to care for themselves before returning to school ready for a great year!
CLASS OF 2020 PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
Please click here for the post-secondary planning lesson presented by our counselors in the 11th grade history classrooms. Students received an overview of information and resources to help them plan for their goals, whether they are interested in community college, four-year universities, vocational schools or the military. Students were encouraged to continue college/career exploration at home during the summer and will receive more detailed information as they kick off senior year.

COLLEGE SIGNING DAY 2019 at GHS
The future's so bright, we gotta wear shades! During lunch on May 1st, we celebrated our Class of 2019 seniors who have successfully completed their "a-g" college requirements. We are so proud of all 244 foothillers who have worked hard to complete these requirements during high school and will be following a variety of exciting paths after they graduate.
