OUR MISSION & VISION

 
Our Mission

OUR MISSION is to provide a culturally-diverse environment for students from around the globe and enable them to become active learners and well-rounded citizens who contribute positively to the world.  It is vital for our school to be recognized in the community as one that achieves high academic standards, and whose students and graduates are citizens of good character. The most important criteria for measuring the success of our mission will be our ability to attract students based on our vision; the high number of graduating students entering post-secondary institutions; and the resulting sense of satisfaction and reward felt by the GOSS community.
