Congratulations to everyone in the Garfield Heights High School family on the recent success of winning the Momentum Award from the State of Ohio for the 4th consecutive year. The Momentum Award is presented to school districts from the Ohio Board of Education to schools for exceeding expectations for student growth for the past year. The High School had at least two Value-Added subgroups of students, including gifted, lowest 20% in achievement and students with disabilities. With this 4th consecutive Momentum Award, our efforts are affirmed in deliberately identifying precisely where students are in their respective academic journeys and helping them to grow and achieve.
At the building, we continue to focus on the pillars of Bulldog Pride, including efforts to be prepared, respectful, involved, determined and excellent. We encourage students in Grades 9 through 12 to be the best versions of themselves each and every day.
Students and families should mark their calendars for End-of-Course exams on Wednesdays and Thursdays with make-up exams on Fridays, beginning on April 15th and ending May 4th.
The Drama department will be showcasing their spring musical Suessical, The Musical in April, including a preview for senior citizens, and performances for the entire community. We strongly encourage you to stop by to see our talented students. Also, keep in mind that spring athletics will be starting soon, so please check the website to determine when you can attend and cheer our student athletes on.
Parents’ respective help in asking their children about their school journeys goes a long way to demonstrate support, interest and genuine care in their academic and co-curricular endeavors. Please take a moment to ask your children about their days! Thank you always for your continued support!
