Degrees and Certifications:
Brian Winter, Principal
Welcome to Gilbert High School! We are excited that you have chosen GHS and are part of the Tiger family. I am both honored and humbled to serve as the Principal at GHS and to be part of a culture built on rich tradition as well as academic excellence. Gilbert High School has been serving the Gilbert community for over 100 years and was named an A+ School of Excellence in 2017.
I was born and raised in Minnesota and am beginning my 34th year as an educator. I taught for 18 years prior to moving into administration and have served in a variety of different administrative roles during the past 15 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Winona State University in Physical Education with a Reading endorsement and my Master’s Degree from Minnesota State University (Mankato) in Educational Leadership. I am married and have three adult children.
I am passionate about equity, fairness and opportunity for all students. Our faculty, staff and administration are committed to providing a quality learning experience for all students. Our focus as educators will be to continue preparing students for college and careers by developing essential skills and behaviors in a safe and supportive learning environment. Our teachers provide relevant and engaging content while building positive and productive relationships with students and their families.
One of the benefits of being a comprehensive high school is our ability to provide a unique, challenging and expansive curriculum that encourages inquiry, problem solving and collaboration to meet the needs of our various learners. We are excited to add International Baccalaureate (IB) to our campus this year. Our student clubs and organizations, performing arts and athletic programs provide students with opportunities to participate in and investigate a wide range of interests.
Our partnership with our families and community is an integral part of the success of GHS. The Gilbert High School family of teachers, support staff and administrators encourages you to participate in your child’s education. The success of students in both academic and extracurricular activities can only reach its fullest potential when we all work together. I am excited about the work we will do together “Continuing a tradition of excellence one student at a time”.
GPS Global Academy Update
We are delighted to update our community that students who choose GPS Global Academy online, for the 2020/21 school year, will be able to return to their chosen campus when ready to return to in-person learning. As a school community, we are excited to be able to offer this level of flexibility to meet the needs of our students and families. In the meantime, while studying with GPS Global Academy, students will enjoy being a part of a supportive online learning community, frequently interacting with their teachers and classmates and some of those teachers may well be ones from our very own campus. Parents will have easy access to their GPS Global Academy teachers, just like when students are on-campus and will be communicated directly with by our GPS Global Academy team. During this time, students will also be able to access extra-curricular activities, athletics, and performing arts at their home campus, as they are available. When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming any GPS Global Academy students who want to return back to Gilbert High School.
