Co-op Classes/Clubs: GHSA meets one day a week for co-op classes/clubs, planned and facilitated by volunteer parents. Classes typically run morning to mid-afternoon and vary per semester. Classes are generally split by age groups, elementary and middle-high students. GHSA Membership is required and parents are expected to be involved in some way (preparing for classes, facilitating class, or assisting in clean-up of the facility).
Academic Programs and Competitions: GHSA enjoys competing in various Guam competitions, such as Math Counts, Math Kangaroo and Robotics competitions.
Social Get-togethers: GHSA has a kick-off event, usually a beach picnic. In addition, we occasionally have Mom’s night out events, Skyzone meet-ups, and outreach events.
Special Days: We try to have some special events each year, such as Field Day, Chamorro Day, International Day, etc.
Field Trips: GHSA offers at least 2 official field trips per year. In addition, many members organize their own field trips and advertise on the Yahoo email group or on Facebook.
Standardized Testing: GHSA offers the IOWA Test for 3rd – 12th grade in April or May. We rent rooms in a local church and administer the test for three days. One parent acts as the Test Administer and parents volunteer to proctor the test.
