“Attendance + Hard Work + Positive Attitude = Success!  - Principal Rick Hall 

Things are looking up at GCHS!
Our school grade is up to a C!!!!!

From the Principal

Dear Parents & Students,
There have been a number of changes that have occurred throughout the Gallup McKinley County School District over the last several months. With change comes opportunity and I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved with the school district's alternative environment. Gallup Central High School will be the home of a variety of alternative programs designed for success for students who have struggled to meet graduation requirements in their home schools. There are several significant changes that will take place this school year that may impact your student and the manner in which Gallup Central High School operates. Some items to be aware of for the 2015 -2016 school year:
  • Increased student population - estimated at approximately 250 students
  • Assignment of students from other local high schools
  • Uniform Dress Code Policy
  • New Enrollment process and forms
  • Wider spectrum of support services for students
  • New start and end times for the school day - 8:45 am Start & 2:49 pm Finish
Gallup Central High School's purpose will continue to be that of providing an environment focused on student success. Please visit this webpage often for updates and upcoming events, Enrollment Information, and other important announcements.

I look forward to a productive and successful school year.


Rick Hall

Uniform Dress Code Policy for 2015-2016

Gallup McKinley County Schools have given the responsibility of each school to develop, implement, and enforce the students' dress expectations for the 2015-2016 school year. Gallup Central High School, along with input from the administrations of the other schools we provide support to, has chosen to implement a Uniform Dress Code that will begin on August 11, 2015.

All students who attend Gallup Central High School during the regular school day (8:45 am - 2:49 pm) will be required to be in compliance with the Uniform Dress Code while they are on the campus. The only exceptions to the Uniform Dress Code will be students that are enrolled in the Gateway To Independence Program (GTI), the Nueva Vista Program (18+ evening program), and the Gallup Central High School Adult Education Program (21+ afternoon/evening program).

The Gallup Central High School Uniform has been put into place in order to maintain the integrity of expectations for appropriate dress and behavior within ALL Gallup McKinley County High Schools. For more information and details regarding the GCHS Uniform Dress Code please follow the link provided. Additionally copies are available in the main office.
