Mr. Cary Dimmick, Principal
I am so excited to be a part of the rich tradition of Gaithersburg High School. I am so thankful and appreciative of the incredible welcome and support I have received from the students, staff and community during my transition to GHS. Throughout this year, I have been amazed at the enthusiasm of our students, the dedication of our staff , and the unrelenting support from our families. It is my hope that we begin channel this positive energy into spreading the great aspects of Gaithersburg HS as we continue to create opportunities to expand upon the existing school spirit. We have committed ourselves to continue to be creative in our work as we prepare and support all of our students for career choices upon graduation. We will continue to build upon our excellent array of career preparation programs, including advanced placement classes, certification courses, and a wide variety of electives. We will also continue to support our extracurricular opportunities for students, as we grow our arts, music and athletic programs – as well as our student clubs and activities. I am so excited as to where we can take our students – and what we can help them become beyond Gaithersburg. Thank you for your continued support of our students, staff and community.
