What parents say about Gladstone schools

“Our son graduated from Gladstone High in 2013 and is now thriving at Princeton University — in and out of the classroom— largely because he received such an incredible education at Gladstone High School. He may be 3,000 miles away from home, but his GHS experience keeps bearing fruit. Recently he performed in his first college play.”
— Dave Hunt, former Oregon Legislator & GHS parent

“Gladstone High just keeps adding more opportunities to earn college credit while in high school.  Our son Aaron graduated in 2009 with 30 college credits, and recently graduated from OSU. He is now working for Hi-Tech, and couldn’t be happier. Our daughter Marianna graduated in 2012 with 65 college credits.  Marianna will earn her Bachelor’s degree from OSU in just 3 years.  Both our kids were so well prepared for the university.”
— Janae Petrous, parent of two GHS alumni
