About New Washington Middle/High School

New Washington Middle/High School (NWM/HS) is a unique school in GCCS as it serves grades six through twelve on the same campus and enrolls approximately 387 students.  The middle school program is located on the first floor and the high school program is located on the second with Ag-Tech, Arts, Health/P.E., and Music located in a separate wing.  The Library/Media Center is a hub of activity for resources and research and is located in the middle of the building on the first level.

NWM/HS is committed to learning, creativity, and individual achievement in a safe, responsible and challenging environment through dedicated school and community cooperation.  It is truly a world-class education in a small school setting.

NWM/HS offers a variety of highly effective curriculum and extra-curricular activities.  The Academic Team continues to be competitive in local and state competitions with individual and team winners.  The competitive cheer squad has won three state championships and has been state runner-up twice over the last six years.  The marching band has become a regular participant in regional competitions and brings home championship hardware for their efforts.  The Future Farmers of America (FFA) has been recognized at the local, state, and national levels over the years.  There is much to be proud of for the New Washington community.
