Thank you for visiting the GHS Counseling webpage! Please use the links on the left to find valuable information for parents and students. Upcoming events can be found below. If you need further assistance, counselors are available by appointment, Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm.





Transcripts are NOT automatically sent to colleges for our graduating seniors.  Please read all messages from colleges and be sure to request a transcript if your college requires it.  Official transcripts can be requested by completing a form in our Registrar's office on the first floor of the main office.  Be sure to write the address correctly and legibly.  If the request is for a final transcript to be sent after grades post, please write "FINAL TRANSCRIPT" at the top.


Counselors presented this information to juniors in May. Students used the College Search feature of Career Cruising to explore their postsecondary options and develop a list of colleges to consider.  Senior year is almost here!  We will continue working with students in September.



Did you request an honors or AP course for next year?

Please click here for an assignment for Sophomore English.  It is recommended that you get a head start by completing this work during the summer!  Students who do not complete this during the summer will need to read 15-20 pages and work on the study guide each night during the first three weeks of school.

Please click here for the suggested reading (not required) for 11th grade AP English Literature and 12th grade AP English Language.

There are no summer reading assignments for honors/AP social science courses, nor freshman honors English.
