2021 GHS Graduation Date – Thursday, June 17th at 2:30 pm, at DAR Constitution Hall

Trojan community –

MCPS released our Gaithersburg High School tentative Graduation Date – which is Thursday, June 17th, 2021 at 2:30 pm at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.

Please note, this is a TENTATIVE date and location, pending finalization of contracts with the graduation venues, as well as a review of COVID-19 health and safety metrics within Montgomery County and the local government authorities associated with the graduation venues.


MCPS has established contingency plans for our commencement exercises in the event that decisions are made by local government authorities, which will be based on COVID-19 health and safety metrics, to restrict access to graduation venues. These contingency plans, and a timeline for review and assessment of COVID-19 health and safety metrics, will be reviewed and decided upon around April 15, 2021.  If the decision is made to initiate a contingency option (i.e. possible outdoor venues or a virtual graduation), we will continue to update you on these options.

Stay safe Trojans!

Support For Students During Trying Times (Apoyo a los estudiantes durante los momentos difíciles)

Trojan community –

As the nation and our children read, hear and watch about the riots that occurred at the U.S. Capitol building yesterday, we are reminded just how important it is for us to teach about and model civility and respect for our democracy. As we work to understand the actions of yesterday, and to take the appropriate steps to heal and move forward as a nation, we know that we will need to work together and support each other.  As adults, we must always remember that our children are watching and looking to us as role models. How we respond in the days ahead will have a significant impact on our community.

Over the next few days, school counselors, administrators and teachers will be available to support our GHS students. If needed, students can make an appointment with their school counselor by visiting the counseling webpage HERE.  Administrators are also available to meet with students virtually or by phone.  We are also encouraging our Trojan parents/guardians to talk with their children about these issues - and have provided a list of resources on our GHS Website (News and Announcements).

We care deeply about our students and are always here for them as we continue to work through these trying times.


Cary Dimmick, Principal


Comunidad troyana -

A medida que la nación y nuestros niños leen, escuchan y observan los disturbios que ocurrieron ayer en el edificio del Capitolio de los Estados Unidos, recordamos cuán importante es para nosotros enseñar y modelar la civilidad y el respeto por nuestra democracia. A medida que trabajamos para comprender las acciones de ayer y tomar las medidas adecuadas para sanar y avanzar como nación, sabemos que necesitaremos trabajar juntos y apoyarnos mutuamente. Como adultos, siempre debemos recordar que nuestros hijos nos miran y nos miran como modelos a seguir. La forma en que respondamos en los próximos días tendrá un impacto significativo en nuestra comunidad.

Durante los próximos días, los consejeros escolares, administradores y maestros estarán disponibles para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes de GHS. Si es necesario, los estudiantes pueden hacer una cita con su consejero escolar visitando la página web de consejería AQUI.

Los administradores también están disponibles para reunirse con los estudiantes virtualmente o por teléfono. También alentamos a nuestros padres / tutores troyanos a que hablen con sus hijos sobre estos temas, y hemos proporcionado una lista de recursos en nuestro sitio web de GHS (noticias y anuncios)

Nos preocupamos profundamente por nuestros estudiantes y siempre estamos aquí para ellos mientras seguimos trabajando en estos tiempos difíciles.
