On Thursday, January 11, 2018, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm, a great group of GWHS graduates will return to tell all in a panel at the GW Library. Current George students and parents are invited to attend the panel event and hear about the varied paths that these recent alumni have taken. Bring your questions about the college search process, applications, financial aid, and campus life, and get answers from the experts. Pizza will be served! If you’re interested, please RSVP HERE.
Second semester schedules are now available on Infinite Campus for all students. Please check your student portal and make sure you have the classes you need for next semester. We are not printing schedules, so you must go online to view them.
Beginning Monday, December 11, advisors will be available in the Success Center and in the IB Office to make schedule changes during lunch and after school only. Schedule changes will be made for compelling academic reasons only, and the schedule change form HERE must be filled out before changes will be processed. There will be no teacher changes! The last day for second semester schedule changes will be Wednesday, December 13, 2017.

The Gifted and Talented Office at GWHS provides students with the support they need to nurture their individual academic strengths. Both new and established GT students can take a few simple but important steps to make sure that they have access to the resources they need.
Gifted and Talented Advanced Learning Plans
Every Gifted and Talented student needs to complete an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) to help identify personal strengths, yearly progress, and social and emotional needs. Start the process by logging in to Naviance HERE, using your six-digit student ID (lunch number) as your username, and your six-digit birthdate (February 9, 2000 would become 020900) as your password. Once you have logged in, please click on your “About Me” tab, then look for the link in the list of surveys to the left. Click ‘view all surveys,’ and you will be guided through the first part of your ALP. After you submit your ALP survey, the GT Office may be in further communication with next steps!
GT Goal Consultations
GT goal consultations are by appointment or walk in on Thursdays and may be set after a counselor, teacher, or administrative referral has been made. Students may self-refer through these professionals. Parents are always in full communication whenever goal consultations are in place. To schedule a consultation, fill out the form HERE.
Gifted and Talented Lunch Discussion Group
The GT Office hosts discussion group meetings every other Thursday in the Hall of Fame Room during lunch. The next few meetings are scheduled for December 14, January 11, and January 25. All GT students are welcome; if you plan to attend, please RSVP HERE.
If you have questions about the GW Gifted and Talented program, please reach out to Brian Beard at email@example.com.
