How you can Prepare for GHS

Incoming 9th Grade Students:

  • Recommendations from 8th grade teachers are made for Core Classes (English, World History, Math, Earth/Space Science, & Spanish). These recommendations are made with the following considerations in mind:

    • 8th grade academic performance

    • Available standardized data (SBAC, NGSS, MAP, etc.)

    • Work habits

  • All 9th grade students are enrolled in Health and Physical Education

  • 9th grade students have space for 1-2 credits of elective choices. During the spring, students receive information from their school counseling office about elective selection. A representative from GHS also meets with small groups of students from our sending towns to assist with the process and answer any questions. A Study Hall is highly encouraged for the 1st semester of high school to aid in the transition.


Transfer Students

  • Credits and academic history are transferred as recorded onto a Griswold High School transcript. Grade levels are assigned based on credits earned:

    • Grade 9: less than 6 credits

    • Grade 10: 6 credits

    • Grade 11: 12 credits

    • Grade 12: 18 credits

  • If the academic year is underway, the current schedule of courses at the student’s prior school will be matched as closely as possible

    • Grades received to date from courses at previous school will transfer into the student’s new schedule of courses

    • The student’s school counselor will complete a credit audit and ensure the student is placed in courses required for graduation
