The Grossmont Resource Center (GRC) is a program at Grossmont High School that reaches out to meet the personal and social needs of our students and families. It is a collaborative effort between the community and our school to provide direct services on campus that will enhance the opportunity for students to achieve academic, social and personal success. The GRC is also a place where parents, students, and staff can obtain information and referrals for problems that are not normally handled by the school or our partners.

The GRC is located in the main office building.

Some of the offerings available in the GRC:

  • Support Groups

  • Individual Counseling

  • Peer Mediation/Peer Listening

  • Medi-Cal Contacts and Services

  • Community Resources (Please see links below)



Grossmont High School partnered with San Diego Youth Services for the 4th year in a row to offer “Check Your Mood” to all 9th & 10th graders. This program focuses on educating youth and their families about depression and reducing the stigma around seeking help for mental health issues. In November, SDYS presented curriculum in classrooms, staffed an informational table at lunch, and provided additional support for students that expressed interest and/or need. Parent awareness is integral to the success of this program. Please click here for additional information.
