Board meetings are monthly and all parents are welcome and encouraged to participate! Denise Schall, President [send email]. Rachel Barack Hewitt, Vice-President.
House System — The Highly Gifted Magnet
We recognize that a student can feel rather overwhelmed in the environment of the large public high school. While our magnet program feels more like a cozy community, we can build even more camaraderie across grade levels and more HGM spirit with our house system. Each house meets monthly for 1-2 class periods and is made up of all grade levels. In addition, there are house spirit activities, organized by students, such as Capture the Flag, house games at social events, HGM Jeopardy.
