GGHS had qualified for the California Distinguished School Award based on growth in the 6 California Dashboard Indicators, particularly in closing the achievement gap in the academic indicator. (Link to the Dashboard at bottom of "Plans & Accountability" page under "About Us" tab)
We then submitted an application to describe a process that distinguishes us--our comprehensive guidance program. (See description under "Guidance" tab) The state has validated this and named us a 2019 California Distinguished School.
