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.
Great Mills High School is a comprehensive public high school of 1600 plus students in grades 9-12. It serves the community in the southern end of St. Mary's County, Maryland, at the confluence of the Potomac River, Patuxent River, and Chesapeake Bay. The area is a mixture of rural and suburban communities. The Principal of the school is Ms. Heibel. Many of the families are employed by NAS Patuxent River, government contractors, St. Mary's College of Maryland, and others involved in the traditional agriculture and water related businesses. The ethnic population of the school reflects the community 63 percent Caucasian, 31 percent African American, 1.3 percent Hispanic and 4.7 percent other.
Great Mills High School was founded in 1929, as one of the original high schools in St. Mary's County, Maryland. It has since expanded from a school house to a school building rolling on several acres, with a football, soccer, and field hockey field, and tied to a county pool next door.

At Great Mills High School, student-athletes are known as the hornets and that mascot, according to Julius A. Levay, comes from a terse relationship he had with one of his students. In the early 1950s, Levay, known to his friends as Hank, was teaching biology at Great Mills High School. Great Mills High School is devoted to the education and individual improvement of every candidate. The school attempts to be aware and responsive in its program offerings in order to mirror the requirements of the changing world.
