Thanks for viewing our website. We hope that you take the opportunity in the near future to personally visit our campus on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast.

We are excited to welcome to campus seventeen new staff members this fall. The administration searched long and hard in the surrounding region to add the most qualified staff to the Gator Team. This group of new hires brings an impressive résumé to join with our already outstanding group of educators at GHS. We are confident that our staff will take us to new heights of excellence in the years to come.

The GHS staff and student body appreciate the continued support of our parents and community and look forward to their presence at our many school events. We want to share our many celebrations with our Gator stakeholders. There is no doubt that the 2018 - 2019 Gators have a bite just as big as their smile!

With the efforts of inspired students, caring staff, trusting parents, and supportive community, GHS will live this year by the motto "WILL" as we continue to move closer to our vision of being recognized as the best high school in the state of Mississippi!

Your principal,
Al Sparkman
