Principal's Message

Each year students participate in the Georgia Student Health Survey issued by the Georgia Department of Education. GOC will administer these surveys next week during regular labs. To  learn more about the survey please visit the  Georgia Department of Education  website. 

All student responses will be anonymous and participation in the Health Survey is an important part of GOC's Climate Rating issued by the state.  We encourage all students to take part in the survey while on campus next week.

If you know your student  will not  return to GOC next year, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can open the spot to a new family during full-time registration. Those students who will not return next year will need to come on campus to withdraw after grades are posted in May 2019.
