Educational Options Based on Individual Goals

EGHHS is a learning option designed to support the needs of students in today’s challenging world. Our goal is for students and parents to feel included, respected, and valued by their learning community.  Students will be  empowered and engaged by choice in their learning experiences and student learning will be built on independent as well as collaborative learning experiences that celebrate and honor each individual's unique perspective and culture.  Finally, students will build  proficiency via inquiry, collaboration, and academic discussion in order to  gain transferable knowledge and skills for a successful and productive future.
