BELIEF STATEMENTS

  • We believe that the purpose of schools is to prepare students to become productive members of society.                                                                                       
  • We believe that teachers should serve as facilitators by providing the opportunity and environment for learning and by serving as enthusiastic leaders and positive role models.                                                                                                            
  • We believe that students need to be responsible and accountable for their own learning.                                                                                                                          
  • We believe in order to maximize student success; all members of the Gavit community (parents, students, teachers and community leaders) must be active participants in the learning process.                                                                                                                                   
  • We believe the school should provide a positive, safe, enriching environment where all parties feel accepted and respected.                                                                                                             
  • We believe that in order to help create a sense of pride, the school’s physical facilities should be clean, comfortable and in working order.                                                                                            
  • We believe all members of the school community should be treated with respect, dignity, and without discrimination in order to foster a positive and trustful environment.                                                                                                                                                                           
  • We believe that a vertical and horizontal alignment of curriculum is critical to the appropriate placement of students in the educational setting.                                                                                                
  • We believe that curriculum, instruction, and assessment must be aligned, as well as focus on students, be relevant, be flexible and take into account student diversity, and address both content area and life/social skills.                                                                                          
  • We believe in order for students to become productive members of society, rules must be fair and consistently enforced by everyone in the school setting.                                                                        
  • We believe that in order to prepare students for the future, all Gavit students need equal access to all available technology.                                                                                                                      
  • We believe that technology is a valuable tool to enhance student learning when integrated appropriately into the educational setting.                                                                                                     
  • We believe students should be afforded high teacher expectations.                                                                                   
  • We believe our staff needs to be continually updated on practices and methodologies as they apply to our culturally changing and diverse population.                                                                        
  • We believe hiring practices should allow the staff to reflect the nature and diversity of the school’s population.

Principal's Message
It is with the utmost of pride that I was given the opportunity to serve the students of Gavit Middle/ High again. The students are extremely important to me and I want to assure you that I am truly partners with you, in making sure that your child is offered the best instruction, and extra-curricular activities found in any comprehensive high school.

Our teachers are completely dedicated to the success of our students and committed to on-going professional development that is transferred into effective teaching practices for their personal and professional growth. Teachers are continuously available for our students and offer a variety of methods of teaching. 

Gavit High School is also proud to offer Advanced Placement (AP) Courses for students seeking to experience the academic rigor of university coursework, which will enable a smoother transition from high school to college, and the opportunity of earning college credit by taking and passing the AP exam. If students are not ready for Advanced Placement, they are registered in general education coursework that expose them to state standards and offer them the same academic rigor required to meet their grade level benchmark.

The administrative team is available and ready to serve our students, parents and teachers in supporting our school community and keeping us in a safe and caring environment. In order to accomplish a climate suitable for learning, you can find our administrative team highly visible and strongly supporting the school’s disciplinary plan.

Welcome to Gavit!

Mrs. M. Ondas
