Grossmont Middle College High school is an excellent program that allows students to dual enroll in both high school and college courses. I am currently a junior in high school, doubling as a freshman college! I plan on getting my associates degree by the time I graduate my high school classes, and have been greatly exposed to various college opportunities. This school does an amazing job at preparing students for a 4-year university, and I am so happy I am able to attend it! This program is perfect for hard working, driven students who hope to get ahead!

The college is great, at school we have multiple programs. Test scores are far above the state average at this school, meaning that most students are performing at or above grade level at this school. Most successful students in high school end up in university remedial math classes. Is your student prepared for mathematics at the college level? Ask this school how to make sure students are well prepared. At this school, disadvantaged students perform much better than other students in the country, and this school is effectively closing the gap in achievement.
GMCHS is an excellent school for students who dont want to follow with the typical highschool routine. We have 2 classes between 2 teachers, while we take various classes at Grossmont College. This program allows you to graduate with a minimum of 24 college credits, if you join in your Junior year. Its an excellent program for students who want to get a headstart in life, and the only thing I would change is having our highschool curriculum not be in such as traditional format.
