Every ten years high schools across the country go through an evaluation process based upon NEASC standards.  Staff, students, parents, and community members all have an opportunity to be part of this evaluation process. GHS appreciates your involvement.  In October of 2014 Gorham High School will be visited by a team of teachers and administrators. Click here to learn more!

Dates to Remember

 

September 2: Picture Day (ID’s are made for students even without a package purchase). Photos are taken of all students so their picture will appear in the yearbook, but no purchase is necessary. Vision screening for freshmen only, is also done at this time.

 

September 9: Open House 6 – 8:30 PM

Parents will have the opportunity to follow their child’s schedule and attend shortened classes. Teachers will discuss the class and expectations for students. They may teach a mini-lesson. This will be a chance to experience your child’s day and get to know the school a bit better. This will not be a time to discuss your child’s progress. That will come during conferences in October (10/23 & 10/24).
