After careful deliberation, and in keeping with other large urban school districts in the state, the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education has suspended in person classes for students effective Monday, March 16 through the end of the year Friday, June 12. Information will continue to be provided from the district and Garden Grove High School through Parent Square, school and district websites, and social media.
GGHS will be hosting approximately 30 admission counselors from both private and public out-of-state colleges and universities in the GGHS North Gym. They will give a brief presentation on their institutions and will host a Mini-College Fair directly following the presentations. Presentations begin at 6:00 pm, Mini-Fair at 7:00 pm. All sophomore and junior students and parents are invited to attend. See Mrs. Pham, School Counselor for more information.
GGHS student leaders ran an all-school assembly called Words Hurt to address important topics like eliminating racist and derogatory language, standing up against hate, and promoting a positive and empathetic school culture and climate. Click the link above to see the introductory video which kicked off the discussion aimed to highlight the importance of respecting all people and embracing diversity.

Our district, the first California Exemplary District in Orange County, continues to make great strides to advance our strategic goals of equipping all students with the academic skills and personal skills for lifelong success. We are grateful for the support of our families and staff as we work together to support the success of all students.
In March 2019 Garden Grove High School was named as a California Distinguished School! GGHS is one of only 74 high schools in California and only 11 in Orange County to earn this distinction by closing the achievement gap as measured by California School Dashboard indicators. In particular GGHS showed significant growth in the dashboard’s Academic Indicator which is a reflection of the recent growth in performance on SBAC testing in English-Language Arts and math. This is truly an honor and testament to the hard work of students, faculty, and parents. We’re all so proud to be ARGOs!
