Grit
At HGA all scholars are told about the importance of having grit in all that you do ! Layla Loera has possessed passion and perseverance in everything that she does ! She has exemplified that grit is what takes you to the distance in life. Your friends,family, and teachers are so proud of you (=
High Expectations
The culture of high expectations is shown at HGA.
I chose Caleb Enriquez for my scholar of the month for High Expectations. He has demonstrated that hard work pays off. He has set his goals and achieved his goals in his classes. 
Congratulations Caleb! Your family, teachers, friends, and school community are very proud of you.
