Congratulations on your upcoming transition to Glenelg High School! We are so excited that you will soon be joining the Gladiator family at GHS. Our goal is to arm every student with the information they need to make the transition to high school as easy and as enjoyable as possible. With that in mind, we match every student new to GHS with an upper classman mentor (an 11th or 12th grader) based on similar interests. Your mentor will communicate helpful information to you throughout your first year, as well as support you or help you find additional support in whatever way is needed. Once you have completed the survey located on the Student Services link of the Student Services tab we will begin the mentor match process for you. You will have an opportunity to meet your mentor at the 8th Grade Visit Day on June 7th.
