Our Mission. We are parents, guardians, teachers, students, administrators and community members, all committed to fulfilling the vision of a unified school culture. We advocate for the success of all GWHS students and families by being welcoming and inclusive. We strive to create opportunities to celebrate and support GWHS students and staff at school and throughout the community. In our volunteerism, we commit ourselves to:
Parent and Student Voice We create opportunities and a platform for discussion of ways to promote quality education, expand arts programming, encourage community involvement, and promote a healthy environment and safe community.
Community Experience We work to provide opportunities to our community to join in topical conversations with expert presenters, to experience visual and performing arts, and to attend athletic events and other activities. To submit an idea for a community experience, please email GWHS.PTSO@gmail.com.
Academic Support and Mentoring We support students in becoming well-prepared for college and career. We serve as tutors and mentors via Patriot Pairs, Queenship, AVID, Life After George, and other school organizations.
Special Events We create, organize and staff student and school events, including After Prom, Teacher/Staff Appreciation Events, and new student/family recruiting.
Fundraising We create grassroots fundraising to enhance GWHS’s academics and school culture through the Be Inspired Annual Fund and George Washington Patriots Care.
