We want all learners to believe in their power to embrace learning, to excel, and to own their future.


The Faculty and Staff of GCHS believe:

  • That we need to share one vision to be successful,
  • That learning increases when all stakeholders take an active role in the success of the school,
  • That student learning increases when everyone demonstrates a commitment to continual personal and professional learning,
  • That learning increases when a safe and ethical atmosphere is provided,
  • That student learning increases when teachers provide a creative learning environment with interesting and relevant activities,
  • That every child can learn, however may learn differently,
  • That students learn, when the needs of the "whole child" are met and when the teacher sets goals to encourage all students to achieve,
  • That student attitudes about learning are affected by the school climate and policies,
  • That student learning increases when teachers include continuous assessment to guide teaching and learning,
  • That student learning increases when students are involved in the assessment of their own work and progress,
  • That all parents have hopes and goals for their children, and
  • That learning increases when parents and families are the primary supporters and motivators of their children's education.
