Trojan Families of 9th Grade Students and New Students to GHS -

We want to invite you to the annual Gaithersburg HS 9th Grade and New Student and New Family Orientations on Thursday, August 29, 2019.  We encourage you to join us as we prepare your student and family to become part of the Trojan family.  In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, students and parents will have an opportunity to learn more about our programs during the following two orientation sessions:

-  Incoming 9th Grade & New Student Orientation:  Thursday, August 29th from 7:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

-  Incoming 9th Grade & New Family Orientation:  Thursday, August 29th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 pm

The New Student Orientation will focus on essential information new students need to make a smooth transition to high school.  MCPS busses will be operating on an Early Dismissal Day schedule, picking up students from stops at the normal morning runs, as well as drop-offs at the dismissal bus run locations.  You can find the GHS Bus Route information at:

The New Family Orientation meeting will focus on the essential information parents need to help their students enjoy a successful high school experience. Topics will include high school expectations, general school procedures, communication, and support services.
