We are truly amazed by the wealth of talent and opportunities we have in our small community. We would like to wish each member of our Bulldog Family a happy and safe holiday season!

Sophomores and Juniors who took the PSAT back in October should receive their scores via email early this week at the address they provided on test day. Counselors will be in classes shortly after Winter Break to go over those scores in detail, as well as to introduce students to some wonderful SAT and college research tools that they now have access to based on their PSAT results. Don’t want to wait? Follow the links in the email to start to explore on your own!
And speaking of SAT preparation, are you looking for a convenient, face-to-face way to become better prepared for this important college entrance exam? Goochland County Public Schools is considering partnering with VCU and The College Board to offer VCU’s SAT Blitz in February at GHS for a deeply discounted rate. Please see the attached flyer for more information. To express interest, simply complete the flyer and return it to the School Counseling office.
GHS Midterm Exam Week begins on Monday, December 16th and ends on Thursday, December 19th. Please see the attached midterm calendar for details. We will end the week with an early dismissal at 1:15 pm on Friday, December 20th. Students, please make sure you have all of your make-up work turned in before you leave for break. Let’s make sure that we finish the first semester strong!
We are excited to announce that Goochland High School received its 2019 Gallup Poll results last week, and we received the highest marks ever recorded in all but one of the student engagement categories. Our faculty and staff work extremely hard to provide engaging learning experiences for our students and continue to support a culture of care here at GHS. We were extremely pleased to see that our hard work is paying off through our students’ responses. We will remain reflective and will continue to improve what we are doing every day to support our students, but we are so appreciative of our students taking the time to provide us with positive feedback. Way to go, Bulldogs!
We will celebrate the accomplishments of our fall sport athletes during our annual Fall Sports Awards Assembly on Wednesday, December 18th at 6:00 pm. Student-athletes and their parents or guardians should make plans to attend. We look forward to acknowledging our Bulldog athletes for their hard work and dedication during the fall athletic season.
