    vision of graduate
    This is quickly written...between giving my little guys dinner and putting them to bed...I'd like to see somewhere in the vision of the GHS graduate that graduates gain admission to the colleges and universities of their choice and are able to do well once there. Or, if not so directly stated, then the vision should reflect feedback that college admission offices have made regarding GHS graduates in recent years. Thank you for all the thoughtful work that has gone into this vision statement.
