Dear Parents, Guardians, Community Members, Students and Friends:
Welcome to Hare High School!
Hare High School is the continuation high school for the Garden Grove Unified School District’s seven comprehensive high schools. At Hare High School, we provide the opportunity for students to get back on track with credits towards earning their high school diploma while providing a supportive environment to be successful. We offer a variety of courses, including CTE courses offered during the school day. Our teachers on staff provide a learning environment that Huskies find success in, providing direct instruction in the classroom where class numbers are small. We take pride in being Huskies and being part of the PACK – Huskies Persevere, are Attentive, Cooperative, and Kind. As a PBIS school, we look to our Huskies to join the PAC and are provided opportunities to celebrate and be recognized for their positive behavior. Hare has partnered this year with Project Kinship who supports Hare’s mission and vision of helping students meet their goals both academically and personally. We have fun at Hare, as we move toward our goals for the future, and our staff and faculty are here to support our Huskies every step of the way!
I am proud to be part of the PACK, and look forward to a great school year alongside the Huskies!
Dr. Stephanie Heflin
Principal, Hare High School
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. We have also been named a California Model Continuation High School in 2016, a three-year title.
We provide a variety of enriching and helpful classes, activities, and programs for our students including:
- Graphic Design and Med Core CTE classes are offered throughout the day
- Our ASB is very active in the community, and partners with OCDE’s “Friday Night Live”, participating in leadership training opportunities and community service
- Our video production class produces a weekly series called "Top Dawg," where students are responsible for writing, producing and filming the show to broadcast to our student body
- Hare High works closely with "Project Kinship," a non-profit organization who provides Restorative Practice Intervention Services for our students
- GGUSD's Infant and Toddler program is housed at Hare High School, providing free of charge child care for students in our district that have children
We are especially proud to award 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.
