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 99-year old history with them. We are open each Wednesday at lunch for the students to explore our amazing traditions.
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 GHS Museum and Alumni Association need your support to continue our efforts to celebrate, preserve, and display our remarkable Foothiller history.

Foothillers have so much to celebrate! For memorabilia donors, please visit our Donors Page.
We know you are as eager as we are for this historic moment. The celebration will begin with a Friday night football game, followed by a Saturday celebration, including the 2020 Hall of Honor induction ceremony and visits to the original restored 1922 Gray Castle and our expanded Museum in its permanent location.
Please help us fund our newest history photo book written by La Mesa historian Jim Newland, author of four local history books.
As we all reflect on the importance of caring for ourselves and our community, we want to share with you some Foothiller news. In an effort to control the coronavirus outbreak, the schools are closed at least through Spring Break and perhaps until the end of the school year in June.
The 1950 Dance Room/Girls Rec Room will be getting new paint and finishes, and security added before our move. However, we need your help to change a 3300 square foot empty room and hallway into the new GHS Museum.
