High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Gainesville High School, GHS is located in Gainesville, Florida. Gainesville High School was founded in 1900 and originally included grades one through twelve. At that time the school was located in what is now Kirby-Smith Elementary School. The first public high school in Gainesville, Florida was established in 1906 is now known as the Kirby Smith Building on East University Avenue. The school consisted of grades 1 to 12 and was known generally as the Gainesville graded high school. Today the high school is operated by the Alachua County School District.
The current principal is Dr. R. Wiley Dixon who joined the GHS staff in July of 2002. He earned his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Florida in 1971, received his Specialist in education from UF in 1982, and earned his Ph.D. also from UF in 1984.In 2006. Gainesville High School was re-accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
GHS courses include English, Mathematics, Social Studies, History, and Science. From 1906 until 1970 Gainesville High School was the only high school serving the city of Gainesville. However, because of large growth in the city throughout the 60's the capacity of GHS became strained forcing the school district to plan for a new high school. Their athletics department has excelled in a variety of other sports, such as Volleyball, Tennis, Soccer, Baseball, and Swimming. Their track and field programs are extensive as well.

Future goals are to be as a high achieving school, maintaining such excellent student achievement is a major challenge. Therefore, every goal is aimed at ensuring that Gainesville High School is a place where students will be successful.
