Foundation Funds Needed Programs at Grossmont

2016 scholarshipIn 2008, a dynamic group of parents, staff, alumni, and community members committed themselves to improving Grossmont High School through the GHS Educational Foundation, a nonprofit 501-C3 entity.
The purpose of the Foundation is to enhance the overall educational experience of the students by raising funds to support the needs of the school. The Foundation encourages parents, students, and alumni to “Take your memories…Leave your footprints.” Appropriately, footprints are the Foundation logo.

JOIN THE FOUNDATION!

Remember – the foundation only works because of volunteers – if you want to participate in your child’s high school experience (it will be over before you know it) and can lend a hand on some project, large or small, WE need several new volunteers for next year and coming years! Pease reach out to Tony Lawrence, GHSEF President by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will find the right opportunity for you to get involved! We need board members, project managers (some are all year, some are a week or two.) We can find your niche! You will never regret being involved with your child’s life and education!

Living Traditions: Advanced Placement

AP TestingA commitment to educational excellence has always been a part of the culture of Grossmont High School. In the 1980’s, Grossmont began offering a new curriculum, Advanced Placement, courses which challenge the high school student to master a rigorous college level curriculum. Each May, the students may take the test; passing the exam with a score of 3, 4, or 5 will in most cases translate to the student receiving college credit or course exemption.
