Principal's Message

  • I would like to welcome parents, students and community members to Gladstone High School, a school community focused on rigor, relationships, relevance and opportunities for all students.

    In Partnership with Citrus College, Gladstone High School offers students a two year dual enrollment opportunity where students graduate with up to 30 credits of college credit completed. Students can take classes in the humanities and math and earn credit towards high school graduation and save money for college in the process. Beyond our Early College Program (ECP), GHS offers 15 Advanced Placement courses, including four in art and AP Computer Science. Gladiators have many opportunities for college readiness that prepare them for success.

    In addition to college readiness, we have vibrant career pathways that prepare students for employment in vibrant sectors of Los Angeles County's economy. Our National Academy Foundation Health Science Academy and our Digital Media classrooms offer student hands on and relevant instruction that is purposeful in preparing them for employment. Our Health Science Academy offers Gladiators internships and field trip experiences over their years in high school to keep interest and motivation levels up. Our music program prepares students for a career in the music industry with dedicated music director who seeks powerful learning experiences and performances in the field so that our Gladiator musicians have a chance to develop their creativity and passion for music.

    Relationships matter at Gladstone, and your children should feel at home on our serene campus. We have a variety of clubs, activities, and sports programs that connect Gladiators to caring adults who are great mentors for the high school journey. We have a dynamic team of teachers, counselors, therapists, and support staff who take pride in student accomplishment and support students where needed.

    Finally, Gladstone HS is committed to excellence-Our Silver Medal from US News and World Report is just the start. Gladstone is committed to earning a Gold Ribbon from California's Department of Education as badge recognizing our commitment to achievement for all students, especially our English learners and special education students.

    We welcome all past and future Gladiators to the Happy Rock. Your presence makes us better! Go Glads!
