Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

We are committed to preparing all students to be successful and responsible citizens who contribute and thrive in a diverse society.

Our Mission

To ensure student success, we will provide a rigorous and supportive academic experience that motivates all learners to meet high expectations.

Our Strategic Plan

The district’s vision and mission drives The Garden Grove Way Strategic Plan which launched during the 2013-2014 school. Developed with input from students, parents, and staff, the Strategic Plan is based on an equation that includes three primary goals: Academic Skills + Personal Skills=Lifelong Success.

Annual Report

Each year, we provide an Annual Report to update the community, parents, and stakeholders on our progress with each of our three strategic goals. The Annual Report identifies areas of strength as well as areas to improve, and provides highlights from our annual survey of students, staff, and parents.

Annual Strategic Plan Survey

The Strategic Plan Survey helps us understand what our schools do well, and how we might improve. This survey is administered in April or May to all students in grades three through twelve. The survey contains items that help us measure how well we are doing as a district in areas related to our Strategic Plan, such as improving scholarly habits, motivation, well-being, and school climate.

Parents Strategic Plan Survey

All GGUSD parents will have the option to take the annual Strategic Plan Survey online or on a Scantron paper version sent home in students’ backpacks. The Scantron survey is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese and the online survey is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Korean.

Feedback from our families is extremely valuable to us as we work to improve year after year on meeting the needs of our students and families and ensuring we provide ALL students with a high quality educational experience.

Surveys should be completed no later than June 1st.
