The holidays were merry for many WGHS Families, thanks to Willow Glen Cares!
Over the last few weeks, our community has collected an amazing array of holiday gifts and parcels for 37 families in need at WGHS! A team of volunteers, led by coordinator, Liz Roselman, wrapped and prepared the wonderful donations of gifts gathered by many students, staff members, Willow Glen families and a variety of community groups. This is truly the spirit of giving at it’s finest. The receiving students and families are unbelievably grateful for this outpouring of kindness and generosity.
Congratulations to our awesome robotics team led by Ahmad Khanssari, as they were just awarded a $2,000 grant from the Brin Wojcicki Foundation. Way to go, robotics team!

Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created by the College Board, which offers college-level curricula courses and examinations to high school students. High School students have the opportunity to earn college course credit if a high score is obtained on the AP examination. Parents/Guardians will be able to meet the instructors and learn more about the specific courses offered at Willow Glen High.

Willow Glen High School hosted Breaking Down the Walls and it was a huge success! Thank you staff & students who participated! Every student who lined up to attend was given the opportunity to attend and all left feeling more connected to those they shared the day with.
A great way for parents to hang out with other parents and chat about what is going on with the Principal, Randy Schmidt. Come join us with a cup of coffee, or bring an empty cup and fill up for free in our main office. Then, join us for the Principal’s Coffee at 8am in the Library on: 1/12, 2/2, 3/2, 4/6, and 5/4.
