Georgetown High School is committed to developing the world class skills and life and career characteristics to fit the Profile of the Graduate by providing educational opportunities to promote lifelong learning and for ethical, productive participation in a democratic society and the global community. The students at Georgetown High School are provided a rigorous curriculum that includes Advanced Placement courses, PACE courses and Honors courses. We also offer a broad selection of Career and Technology courses that prepare students for college and career readiness after high school.
Creativity, teamwork, and work ethic are emphasized in all classes. Georgetown High School faculty consistently participates in on-going professional development opportunities to meet the diverse needs of our student population. Our strong academic program is supported by an outstanding guidance staff that meets with students throughout the year to evaluate graduation progress, academic standing, course requests, career goals and social emotional issues. Enrichment sessions, in-class emphasis, and after-school tutorials are implemented to improve student academic proficiency. Student academic achievement is our priority.
All students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities. There are more than thirty athletic teams and over twenty-three active clubs and organizations at Georgetown High School. Student accomplishments and positive behavior are celebrated through academic ceremonies, athletic banquets, and other student recognition programs such as Student of the Month, Career and Technology Student of the Month, The Kennel Club, and our character education program (TAG). Displays documenting accomplishments are located in the Joe Isaac Student Center and in the main hallways of the school.
The importance of giving back to the community is communicated to and understood by students at Georgetown High School; our students are taught to lead through service to others. The students sponsor collections for Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Relay for Life, St. Francis Animal Shelter, March of Dimes, Special Olympics and annual canned food drives for Helping Hands. We appreciate our stakeholders and the contributions they make to ensure that our school is a great place for learning. We will continue to provide quality educational programs that empower our students to reach their potential as well as achieve their dreams.
While COVID-19 presented many obstacles in 2021-2022, Georgetown High School persevered and was able to continue to provide in-person educational opportunities for all of our students. Despite these challenges we were able to improve our graduation rate. As we move forward into 2022-2023 Georgetown High School is committed to providing the best educational opportunities regardless of the challenges that we face.
