We will have student and teacher speakers discussing issues that are of interest to our HS community. Do Something SurveyBefore moving further in the planning process, we would like to know what interests YOU! Below, there are several different topics that might be interesting to you or something that you might want to know more about. Please choose any topics you like and if there is one that is not listed, but you want to learn more about, please include that in the "others" option.
If you would like to know more about our plans please speak to: Akari, Kata and Ms Molony.
Graded Connect is a student-led platform that connects Graded students with alumni through interviews, dialogue, videos, and more. Aimed at providing students with unlimited information and advice regarding “life after Graded”, the site will offer guidance on colleges, jobs, and careers, provided by Graded’s own alumni. The activity will require its members to interview different alumni on the paths that they have taken after graduating. They will collect information on recent graduates who are currently attending university, as well as graduates who are already working. If you are interested in joining the group please complete the form at this link Graded Connect Form

SAB: The Student Advisory Board provides an avenue of communication between students and faculty, developing leadership skills in motivated Graded students and empowering those students to work with school leadership to improve Graded HS policies and procedures. If you have an inquiry you would like to make please submit FORM
