In October 2008, a dream was realized with the Grand Opening of the GHS Museum on the Grossmont campus. Prior to its opening, Connie Baer, Class of 1965, and Lynn Baer, Class of 1969, spent 18 months, organizing and creating the Museum displays.
During the school year, the ninth grade English classes visit the Museum as part of our efforts to share our wonderful 95-year old history with them. We are open each Wednesday at lunch for the students to explore our amazing traditions.
The highlight of the 2015-2016 was our 95th Anniversary Celebration! To read more about it, please read our "Foothiller Footsteps" November 2015 La Mesa Courier column on the event under the Museum News tab and browse our 95th Anniversary Program under the Programs tab. Foothillers have much to celebrate!
Open to the public the first Wednesday of each month and by appointment on other Wednesdays, the Museum welcomes alumni and the community to share their memories of Grossmont High, as we discover all that we have in common.
The Museum operates solely on donations, which are used to create the Museum displays, to preserve our memorabilia, and to celebrate Grossmont's history. Listed below are some of our current projects and fundraising needs.
