Student Life

The life of a GJHS student is exciting and educational. Students attend math, English, science, and social studies every day throughout the year. Life skills classes round out a student’s schedule, with options of music, foreign language, technology, art, family and consumer science, and physical education.

There are many extra-curricular activities for students, such as athletics, service clubs, academic competitions, the National Junior Honor Society, and student council. For those students wishing to become involved at GJHS, there is no shortage of opportunities.

In order to provide a safe, inviting climate at GJHS, we ask all students and staff to embrace four general guidelines. These include showing respect to all, being prepared for class, actively participating in class, and being on time. These guiding principles help to ensure an environment that is conducive to student’s academic, emotional, and social well-being.

At GJHS you will find excellent facilities that include a Challenge Education Course second to none in the area, an indoor climbing wall, and a climbing cargo net. There are two hardwood floor gymnasiums, a swimming pool, and a fitness and wellness room. Our outdoor facilities include two football fields, two soccer fields, and ten tennis courts. The outdoor space is also used to offer many other opportunities such as golf, archery, and ultimate frisbee.
