    Podcast Episode 19: A pod by any other name!

    All the world's a podcast, and all the men and women merely ... um ... podcast guests? This week Conor and Doug put their English degrees to the test with the works of Sir William of Shakespeare! They also discuss the Advisory Task Force and sit down with a special education teacher to hear about the struggles and success stories he sees in the classroom. New episodes drop every Thursday. Listen and subscribe at 

    Drive Safely!

    This is a dark and dangerous time of year for driving. The lack of streetlights and sidewalks in our area increases the risk for our students who walk to and from school. We want to encourage students who walk or bike to school to wear reflective vests and helmets. And we want to remind drivers to give the road their full attention at all times.

    Bond Project Update

    Winter is just around the corner, but that isn’t stopping our amazing construction teams from making progress on a number of exciting bond projects!

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2022/23 School Year GKHS families! I am excited to welcome students back to what will be a great school year. At GKHS we believe that Orange and Blue Starts with YOU. YOU stands for “Your personal best everyday,” “Own your future,” and “Understand we are one.” This is the language that teachers use with students as they work toward graduation and life after graduation. We want every student to feel a sense of belonging at GKHS.

    This summer the construction team has been busy at work on our expansion project. Students will notice some changes when they return in the fall. The full project- including the 3rd wing – will be complete in the summer of 2023 so this year we will still have areas of the school under construction.

    We have several supports we will offer students this year. We will continue to have the Writing Center available during lunch and study support to work with students for any writing-based assignments such as English or Social Studies papers, Science labs, or other assignments. This will be in room 232. We will have a math tutoring center in room 256 that will be available during all lunches, study support, and select days after school. Students should be aware of these resources and the availability of staff to support them in their learning.


    Mr. Yarkosky
