GGHS Modernization



The modernization of GGUSD schools, made possible by voter-approved Measure A, is the largest such project in Orange County history. We want to thank our parents, employees, students, and the community for their continued support.


At GGHS Modernization projects are ongoing and will deliver 21st-century classrooms and leading-edge technology for our Argo family!


Complete makeovers to the school include access for the disabled, perimeter fencing and gates, completely reengineered drainage systems, new restrooms, new roofs, and classroom paint, fire suppression and security systems. New data and electrical infrastructure has been added in which every classroom has a state of the art interactive projector and an infrastructure for wireless classrooms computers so that every student has access to a computer during class. The most efficient systems for classroom heat and air conditioning, windows, insulation, ceiling material, and smart LED lighting systems draws a fraction of the power that our older systems did and greatly reduces our power consumption.
