Senior High Programs

Grades 10-12

At Golden Hills we believe it is important to establish and maintain open lines of communication and positive relationships between our staff and teachers, to address students' needs both socially and emotionally and to encourage students to achieve, to the best of their ability, academically. Our program was created to enable students to make choices that will prepare them for the path they choose after completing high school, whether its attending a post-secondary institution, entering the work force or starting their own business.
