Gregori High School

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Gregori High School! If you are new to Gregori High School, we are happy to have you be part of the Gregori Family.  Since opening our doors in 2010, we have quickly established ourselves as a school that strives for and achieves excellence.  The entire staff is dedicated and committed to our mission: Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts.  Our administration, certificated, and classified staff work in unison to provide an environment conducive to high achievement where JAGS Achieve, JAGS are Loyal, and JAGS have Integrity. 

The school is named after Joseph A. Gregori, who was a beloved educator in Modesto City Schools. He lived by a message that everyone who knew him heard many times: “I never expect more of you than I do of myself…but I gotta tell ya…I expect a lot of myself.”  This statement, shared with students every school day, is a striving factor at Gregori High School. 

Gregori provides resources to ensure all students are college and career ready by the time they graduate. We ask that all students achieve these outcomes at Gregori High School:

 

Journey towards graduation and lifelong learning

  • Meeting all requirements for graduation

  • Post-secondary preparedness

  • Information and technological literacy

Actively engage in the classroom, school and community

  • Classroom collaboration and participation

  • Use academic language to read, write, discuss and problem solve

  • Engage in campus and civic service projects

  • Participate in extra and co-curricular activities

I am very excited and honored to be the Principal of Gregori High School, and I look forward to working with students, parents, and staff to continue to make Gregori High School an outstanding institution.

Go JAGS!

Derek Pendley, Principal
