Our Program

As the primary means of articulating our mission to "encounter the world and engage the mind," we offer students, from the ninth grade forward, a balance of classroom and experiential learning opportunities. Students spend three days each week at the school and two days at one of 50 learning partner sites including museums, hospitals, a botanical conservatory and parkland, businesses, and other private and public community organizations that share with TGS a common vision for students and their learning.

Classroom work in traditional and non-traditional (for high schools) courses helps students acquire basic conceptual and factual knowledge and develops study habits, self-discipline, research skills, and teamwork. Research, teaching, and service learning experiences at the partner sites develop students' confidence in their ability to do productive and significant work and form a tangible commitment to their community.

The school also is committed to students experiencing college-level courses while in high school through partnership programs with area higher education institutions.

To graduate, students must meet all the requirements for completing coursework in the academic areas as stipulated by the State of Ohio, including passing the Ohio Graduation Test. The Graham School also has further graduation requirements in its experiential program.

Safety Alert

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It has recently been reported that various students have received threatening text messages and phone calls over the past few days. We wanted to inform all TGS students and their families that we have been working very closely with local law enforcement to get to the root of this issue.

As the safety and well being of our students is our top priority, we will continue to work with local law enforcement to solve this issue. To ensure safety in our community, school will be closed Friday, March 27th. We want to assume you that we are taking all appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We intend to re-open Monday, March 30th. Please check back here at The Graham School website or call the front desk at 262-1111 for updates.

Local authorities have recommended student who receive such messages not to respond, and immediately block the number. Please follow up by notifying administration of the messages.

Please direct any questions or concerns to The Graham School Administration.

Rebecca Shell
Dean of Students
