Make Every Day Count!

George Washington High School commends our students who are coming to school each day and on time, with zero instances of tardiness!  We recognize that attending school daily and being on time shows their commitment to learning and their ability to fulfill responsibilities.

To date, our Sophomore Class has the greatest number of students with Perfect Attendance, but our Senior Class has the highest percentage of perfect attendance.  We congratulate all students with Perfect Attendance, and we look forward to honoring them at the end of each nine weeks.  We thank our families for encouraging our students to attend school.  We are looking for interested students, staff, parents, and community member to work with us developing ways to improve student attendance.  Please email us or give us a call.
