December 2021 - Tribute Benches

Since 2010, Foothillers have generously purchased royal blue campus benches which honor classes, individual teachers, administrators, staff, Foothiller values, and Foothiller families.  The past two years 23 new benches were donated to Grossmont as alumni reflected on the influence Grossmont had on their lives.   The donors of the benches vary from an individual, a family, a graduating class, or a group of alumni.   Amazingly, 25 GHS alumni made donations to fund one bench.

November 2021: Reminiscing 101 Years

Grossmont High School’s 101st Anniversary Celebration was a time for Foothillers to gather, reminisce, and share their Foothiller pride.  101 years ago, the school’s founding board members, principal, teachers, staff, and its community could not have imagined the Grossmont of today, a school that treasures its past and embraces its future. 

This identity is shown throughout the campus with the preservation of historic buildings, with the additional of modern buildings whose appearance echo the school’s origins, as well as the many bronze plaques and benches celebrating its past donated by alumni and retirees.  More than once, museum visitors have told us that Grossmont looks more like a college campus than a high school.

The Grossmont High School Museum’s Grand Opening was celebrated on October 17, 2008, but really, the museum’s roots trace back to the amazing teachers from the 1920s who began saving memorabilia, realizing that Grossmont was meant to be a special place.   Looking at today’s enlarged museum, the 1920s displays fill nearly one entire wall.  The large silver plated trophies are just one example of the pride that staff, students, and the community had for their school.
