Open House 2016

Over one hundred people attended the annual event to learn more about the school, academic programs, extracurricular activities and meet the faculty/staff and administration.
Upon arrival and registration guests were greeted by student ambassadors and escorted to the hall where students and parents had opportunity to view a display of student work and projects and interact with current students at the departmental booths all around the hall. Students and their work represented all subject areas and departments. These exhibits provided a glimpse into the rigor and depth of the course work offered at the school by conducting dissections, guessing historic figures, testing their knowledge in English Literature, solving mathematical puzzles and enjoying treats from their Armenian Heritage.

The formal part of the program began with a general group presentation with welcome remarks and slide show by the Principal, Dr. Armine Movsisyan. Board Chairmen, Dr. Esrailian highlighted the vision for the future.

The School Counselor, Mrs. Gohar Stambolyan provided an overview of the School Counseling Program. Finally, the whole group session ended with the Student Council President Hovig Tabakian, sharing his experiences as a student at AGBU MHS followed by a heartfelt message by Mrs. Matossian on behalf of Parent Support Group .

After the whole group session, guests were split up into three groups. Each group was able to tour the entire school facility and hear department presentations. When the tours were completed, guests gathered in the main hall and were able to ask individual and follow up questions to faculty, staff and administration. Guests were also treated to refreshments and desserts by the Parent Support Group and enjoyed a scrimmage game between our Spartan Basketball teams.

Guests were also provided with an incentive at the Open House. Students who complete registration by January 27 will receive $150 off registration fees.

The Open House was a success and the AGBU MHS family looks forward to welcoming the new students to the 2017-2018 school year.
