Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will come to know Golden Hills School as an extraordinary school and a warm and welcoming community. Ultimately, you will get to know us best by touring our campus. We look forward to sharing with you why families, children and teachers LOVE coming to school every day.

GHS is the only local Junior-Kindergarten to Eighth Grade school that is fully-accredited by both the California Association Independent Schools and by Western Association of Schools and Colleges. GHS is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools. During your tour of the school you will learn why GHS is considered the premier independent school in the area, including:

  • Our small class sizes with credentialed and caring faculty that get to know every child and offer a personalized education that inspires each child’s full potential.
  • A thoughtfully-designed, age-appropriate academic program that engages students’ natural curiosity, addresses a variety of learning styles and builds independence.
  • Our integrated, values-based character and leadership programs that address the “whole child” and build confident graduates and thoughtful citizens.
  • A complete Athletics program, daily P.E. classes, weekly Art, Music and Computer Science classes, and a comprehensive Spanish program all taught by specialist.
  • Secure and well-equipped facilities including a technology lab, art and music studios, gymnasium, athletic field, a thriving Learning Garden, and two playgrounds.
  • A welcoming and diverse community with active parent participation that supports strong “educational partnerships” for student education.

Of course, of most importance, is that GHS feels like the right fit for your family.

GHS Celebrates Acts of Kindness Day

JK AOK 13 - Copy 1024x681Last Friday’s Acts of Kindness Day was a joyous success and a terrific expression of our community “Characters of Gold” values and our commitment to “service to others” as stated in our Mission Statement. We use this day to highlight and celebrate our year long commitment to service both within and beyond this school. Some of the charitable and compassionate activities included:

Junior Kindergarten to 2nd Grade collected shoes and participated in the Grace Foundation’s “Shoebox Recycling” program. These shoes will be distributed to the needy throughout the world.

Junior Kindergarten added funds received from the donated shoes to the over $400 they raised themselves from their own yearlong recycling program to “All About Equine” to feed the horses at this local horse rescue organization. 

Kindergarten painted wooden birdhouses and made spring cards for the residents at the El Dorado Senior Home, Creekside Manor. They will be using them as table decorations.

First Grade wrote and illustrated cards for the senior citizens at Eskaton Lincoln Manor in Placerville.

Second Graders wrote letters of compassion to accompany the donated shoes. 

Third and Fourth Grade made sandwiches and snacks, which were donated to the FAITH Ministries Lunch Program which helps to feed the homeless.

Fifth grade made St. Patrick’s Day centerpieces for the Care Facility in El Dorado Hills. Last month they made Valentine’s centerpieces for the facility and they have committed to making their centerpieces each month until the end of the year.

The Middle School “Golden Groups” did the following:

The “Pink Yodas” have been raising funds through community service projects for the middle school aged kids at the at Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Center in the Children’s Cancer Center at UC Davis. On Friday, they wrote cards for the kids in the center so that each one of them would know we are working to help make life more comfortable for them.

The “Wise Whales” built bat boxes, homes for bats, which they will install at the Consumnes River Preserve.

The “Happy Quakers” wrote letters to our troops, through Operation Gratitude. 

The “Zen Pandas” wrote letters to our military through Letters to Soldiers.

Thank you to every student, teacher, parent and volunteer for making this day such a wonderful day!
