In 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.
A 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.
