Gray’s Creek High School is located in the southwestern corner of Cumberland County. It is a true community school serving the students of this growing rural area and has solidified its identity as a unique and individual high school supported by a school system committed to continuous improvement. With a current student population of just over 1500 students in grades 9-12, it is large enough to provide a wide range of opportunities for students while keeping a smaller, more personal climate where students are seen as individuals.
The state-of-the-art facility is designed around an atrium that gives a feeling of openness and warmth. This plan makes all areas of the building accessible through one main entrance, which enhances security for students and staff. Each classroom is equipped with computer network access, closed-circuit TV, and a phone. Laboratories for science and technology classes have the latest equipment for student use.
The curriculum of Gray’s Creek High School is centered on rigorous core academics, supported by a Career and Technical program that is computer technology-based. The Academy of Information Technology provides a small learning community for a cohort of students, preparing them to step into post-secondary opportunities with college credit and certification in computer engineering and networking. The curriculum designed by Johns Hopkins University helps ease the transition from middle to high school. Students may choose from a variety of cultural arts programs to develop their talents and appreciation of music, dance, visual art, and theater. The Navy JROTC offers opportunities for students to sharpen their leadership, intellectual, and physical skills, and to develop self-discipline. The Drill Team adds a competitive edge to this outstanding program.
