Dear Graduate and Parents/Guardians:

Congratulations on your senior year of high school and your upcoming graduation.  Your dedication and hard work have brought you to this exciting time of your life-- your high school graduation.

On Sunday, June 4, 2023, qualified students from the Class of 2023 will be participating in the graduation ceremony from Germantown High School.  To continue the tradition of pride in the accomplishments of our students, it is our goal to plan a dignified and memorable graduation ceremony for graduates and their families.

This webpage will contain information pertaining to your senior year and graduation.  You are responsible for complying with all the guidelines put in place.  The page will be updated and you will be receiving communications via emails throughout the year with deadlines, please check your emails frequently.

Stop in Student Services or the Main office with any other questions you may have and we will be happy to answer them.  We will continue to communicate additional details when they are available.  Our graduation contact is Cindy Ball at / 262-253-3405.
