High School Student Government

Student GovernmentThe High School Student Government is comprised of Vanguard students in grades 9-12, elected by their peers early in the school year.  The Council includes four officer positions (president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer) and senators from each grade level.  High school faculty members serve as the staff advisors to the High School Student Government.

The focus of student government is to:
  • foster a spirit of cooperation among students and faculty.
  • promote and encourage activities for the best interest of the school.
  • develop good citizens and leaders through experience in government.
  • provide a means for student expression.
  • encourage student involvement.
  • promote school spirit.
  • represent and make decisions on behalf of the interest of the student body.
Student government discusses many issues throughout the school year and supports exciting student projects and initiatives, such as our school dances, Homecoming Week festivities, and various service opportunities throughout the year.  Meetings are held once a week with all members, and information is communicated to each of the homerooms and throughout the student body.  The student body, in turn, has the opportunity to exchange ideas and offer suggestions through the class senators to foster a healthy and productive dialogue which benefits the entire high school program and Vanguard community.
