GHS & GMS career guidance programs recognized as one top in the state. The Grandview School District is proud to announce both Grandview High School and Grandview Middle School have been recognized by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for exemplary career guidance programs. Both schools recently received the OSPI 2016 Career Guidance Award of Excellence. The award is presented to schools OSPI considers to have the best of the best career guidance programs in the state. Career guidance programs are important because students who have these programs in their schools are more likely to graduate from high school with a specific postsecondary plan for their future. Congratulations go out to the teachers, administrators, school counselors and staff members who help make programs like this possible.
