Students leaving early

If you need to have your child released early from school, please call the attendance office after 7:30 am, or one hour prior to pickup time.  This will give us sufficient time to locate your child and give him/her an off- campus pass to meet you at the requested time.

Our School

RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY

The Gladstone High School staff prepares every student to successfully enter college and a career. We start by all incoming freshmen having an individual orientation by their Link Leader, their upper classman mentor. Our counselors personalize a learning plan for each student.

Our school works closely with parents. Two parent conferences are scheduled a year for all parents to dialog with their children’s teachers. Parents volunteer in a number of ways, and serve on advisory committees such as Site Council and are active in athletic and music booster clubs. All parents are encouraged to participate.

Our college preparatory curriculum offers an even more rigorous academic challenge through  honors courses. Advanced Placement in Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Spanish Language and Culture, Spanish Literature and Culture, World History, U.S. History, English Literature and Composition, Studio Art, English Language and Composition, U.S. Government, and Biology. For students wanting the excitement of academic competition, the Academic Decathlon team competes against other high schools in L.A. County. 

Gladstone is proud to offer a comprehensive visual and performing arts curriculum in art, design, drama, band, jazz ensemble, concert choir and show choir. Two student drama productions are staged annually. Electives include Spanish, Spanish for the Spanish Speaker, French, American Sign Language, Forensics, Administration of Justice, business courses, fashion and culinary arts, auto mechanics, computer aided drafting, leadership, athletics and an award-winning activities program. 

We are particularly pleased to offer the new Gladstone Medical Pathway for preparation in the health care industry or medical professions. Students completing the pathway will qualify for the Medical Assistant certification prior to graduation. Army JROTC actively affords students opportunities to practice leadership, study military history, earn academic awards, excel in physical fitness, and acquire orienteering proficiency. 

Our daily 25-minute tutorial program, Advisory, is available to all students, and is a requirement for student with less than a 2.5 grade point average. This intervention that involves all teachers has been one of our keys to success.

On Saturdays, Test Prep is conducted weekly, staffed by a Gladstone teacher. A comprehensive special education program, including for the visually impaired, assists all students to succeed.

Gladstone High School is truly a comprehensive high school meeting the needs of all students.
