Gardena High School 'Elites' Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony & Principal's Message

Dear Proud Panthers,


This school year we experienced teaching and learning and supporting each other at a distance. WE adapted and continued getting better. 


To our freshman, many of you who have never stepped foot on the Gardena High School campus, thank YOU for learning with us at a distance and we look forward to sharing the Panther experience, in-person, soon. 


To our sophomores and juniors, thank you for continuing to DREAM. YOU are ready to link learning to college and career and meet or exceed standards.  Learning Today! Leading Tomorrow!  


To our seniors, although the in-person senior experience was not meant to be, there’s no doubt YOU will continue “Breaking Ground for the Future.”  We wish you well and we hope the Panther Pride will lead you throughout college, career, and life. 


To our parents, YOU are a valuable partner in your child’s learning and we thank YOU for your continued patience and support. 


To our Gardena High School Staff, I am confident, “Everything WE try is in the interest of our students and families in mind.” Thank YOU for meeting our students where they are and honoring individual variation in learning to allow more students to succeed academically. 


Yours in Service,

Frank Davies | Principal
