Approximately 15,000 students attend GUHSD schools every day, but each student is much more than a number. Our exemplary teaching staff offers opportunities that meet our students' diverse needs and interests, one teen at a time. GUHSD's nine traditional high schools create numerous opportunities for our 9th-12th grade students to achieve success. Every student must earn a total of 22 credits, and meet or exceed the AIMS exams, to receive a high school diploma. Course offerings prepare students for the future, whether they pursue career and technical education, attend a community college or university, join the military or enter the workforce. Our students have the opportunity to build their own educational plans with the assistance of our counseling departments. This helps our students and parents select appropriate courses to support the exploration of various career opportunities. Students at all our high schools have access to comprehensive career centers that help them explore and determine their path to the future. Access to a full range of technologies, apprenticeships and community business partnerships keeps our high school program a dynamic learning environment. A wide choice of athletic and extracurricular offerings provides our students an arena in which they can build upon the values of teamwork, self-esteem and perseverance.
Learning System Description
Twenty-first century curriculum focuses on:
- skills and abilities, and
- how both are used in the real world
The Glendale Union Plan for Excellence reflects our belief that
- high expectations and high standards of both staff and students promote quality education;
- a quality education provides the academic skills, thinking skills and personal qualities necessary for life in a changing society;
- safe, orderly schools encourage students to develop personal responsibility that is necessary in order to learn;
- education is a shared responsibility - of the student, the school, the home and the community
Our Plan for Excellence demands that we
- constantly measure our progress and set new targets for improvement
- ensure that the district employs and keeps quality personnel
- make effective use of district resources - human, physical and financial
- share community, business, government and education resources.
The Glendale Union High School District adheres to the philosophy that all students can learn. We maintain quality and equity in teaching and learning. While it may take some students longer to reach their goals, we set high standards and expectations for achievement (quality) and require these high standards to be met by all students (equity).
