Dear Parents, Guardians, Community Members, Students and Friends:
Welcome to Hare High School and the beginning of a new school year! We are eager to meet you, get to know you and welcome you to our PACK Family! Here at Hare High, we pride ourselves in providing students with an exemplary education in an accelerated format that allows students to refocus on high school graduation and the attainment of a high school diploma. Life brings us many obstacles and challenges that can sometimes lead us off course. At Hare, we support students in working through life's challenges, helping students to process and learn new skills, all while working toward completing Garden Grove Unified School District's rigorous graduation requirements.
2022-2023 Juniors and seniors, high school is a time of self-discovery and a time for you to uncover your strengths and interests. Unlike others, you have experienced adversity and by attending Hare High have already begun the path to renewed sense of self. We look forward to working with you, witnessing your growth, strength of character, and your desire to learn. No matter how long your tenure with us may be or if you return to your home high school, we have a saying at Hare High, that speaks to the heart of our school and team: "Once a Husky, Always a Husky". May you all have a wonderful year ahead and know that the Hare High School PACK Family welcomes you!
Mrs. Lydia Machado, Principal
Hare High School is Garden Grove Unified School District’s Continuation High School, providing high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get back on track with credits to earn their high school diploma from Hare or their home high school. We serve students from all seven GGUSD high schools. With small class sizes, highly trained staff, and a caring atmosphere, Hare provides its students with both academic and socio-emotional supports to graduate ready for their next step into either college or career.
Hare High is a PBIS School, where Hare Huskies are a PACK - We Persevere. We are Attentive, Cooperative, and Kind. Hare High School received Silver recognition status from the California PBIS Coalition in 2019 for our implementation of PBIS. We have also been named a California Model Continuation High School, a three-year title, in 2016, 2019 and 2022.
We provide a variety of enriching and helpful classes, activities, and programs for our students including:
We are especially proud to recognize our students for their successes at multiple times throughout the year. Each week, we recognize our "Top Dawg," who is randomly selected from a list of teacher nominations. We also recognize our student of the quarter, where one student is selected from a list of teacher nominations who demonstrated strong academic performance, as well as embracing all elements of the "PACK." In addition, each quarter we award students with Husky Honor Roll, for students who achieve a GPA of 3.0 to 3.49, and Principal's Honor Roll, for students who earn a GPA of 3.5 to 4.0. Quarter Nominees and Principal Honor Roll students are also invited to an awards celebration.
