Common Core Corner

What is Common Core?
     The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. (visit the Common Core website here.)

What is Smarter Balanced Assessments?
     The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is developing a system of valid, reliable, and fair next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS); in English language arts/literacy (ELA/literacy) and mathematics for grades 3-8 and 11. The system—which includes both summative and interim assessments for accountability purposes and optional interim assessments for instructional use—will use computer adaptive testing & technologies to the greatest extent possible to provide meaningful feedback and actionable data that teachers and other educators can use to help students succeed. (visit the Smarter Balanced website here.)

What is GHS doing to get ready?
In preparation for the new standards and the new SMARTER Balanced Assessments anticipated in the spring of 2015, Gabrielino departments met at the opening of school to craft performance tasks according to the district-wide Single Plan goal:

“One common performance task for each course at each level that is assessed with a common rubric and collaboratively evaluated developed according to the assessment matrix.

Check out a short explanation of the difference between Common Core and the California State Standards:

"Screaming Eagle" Daily Bulletin

"The bird's eye view" of what's going on at Gabrielino will resume on the first day of school, August 18th.


Last year Gabrielino High School and the City of San Gabriel announced the inaugural year of the “One City, One Book, One Read” program.  As you’ll remember, last year’s selection was The Hobbit.  

The official selection for the Summer 2014 One City, One Book, One Read is The Running Dream, by Wendelin Van Draanen.  The Running Dream is a Schneider Family Book Award, and was also one of the California Young Reader Medal Nominees in the Young Adult category (it lost in the end to Divergent). 

The Running Dream is about a teenager named Jessica who loves to run— it is her passion.  But on the way to a track meet the team van is broadsided and Jessica loses her leg as a result.  The book follows Jessica through her rehabilitation.  Her return from the accident become a way to celebrate friendship, the power of coaches, and to recognize that no one is “disabled,” just differently-abled.

Please join us in reading The Running Dream this summer.  Sharron Heinrich and the San Gabriel Librarian, Julie Sorensen, will present the new book selection to the City Council on the evening of June 3rd.

School Vision

Building on the strengths, talents, and passions of all students

Every Day Counts!!

How important is attendance? Students are more likely to succeed in academics when they consistently attend school. Students who are frequently absent do not acquire the skills they need or make the academic progress necessary to succeed beyond school. Coming to school EVERY day ensures that a student gains the tools he or she needs to live a quality life.  Remember EVERY STUDENT COUNTS!
