Golden Hills Community School
Golden Hills Community School students receive a rigorous education, which enables them the opportunity to earn course credits toward meeting their district’s graduation requirements. Students who are deficient in academic course requirements also have the ability to recover credits through SCOE's Distance Learning Program. We provide instruction in all four core subject areas, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Science, and Science, in addition to English Language Development (ELD) to prepare them for their return to a comprehensive high school.
One of our goals is to create a safe and secure learning environment in which students can thrive socially and emotionally and be academically successful. Students attending Golden Hills Community School are provided wrap-around services to ensure they are building resiliency and other life skills to prepare them to meet life’s challenges. Developing social and emotional competence is as important as academic success for our students.
