Individualized Academic Planning & Support

Middle school students at GWUOHS receive highly personalized and individualized attention and support from their academic advisors and college counselors throughout their academic journey. The advisor they start with is the advisor they graduate with—enabling students and advisors to build meaningful connections and really drive students toward their goals. Each year, they receive a new college counselor with specific, expert knowledge of their grade level and stage in the college-planning process.

Our advisors and counselors focus on the whole student, supporting students academically, socially, and emotionally. Advisors help tailor course schedules to each student’s future goals and work with counselors to develop an Individualized Academic Plan (IAP).

Weekly schedules are also individualized to meet the needs of each student. When building a student’s weekly schedule, advisors and parents might consider live class days/times, club participation, obligations outside of GWUOHS, and more. GWUOHS students always have their Academic Advisor’s guidance when developing a schedule that best suits their needs. 

Student Life & Socialization

Middle school students have the opportunity to engage in a number of clubs and activities with their peers. Each class has sponsors that help with grade-specific events, and students can join a variety of clubs that might pique their interest.

Some examples of clubs include:
