Gunn High School

For the 2020-21 school year, generous donations to PiE have provided Gunn with $1,062,727 to pay for additional staffing that impacts every student at Gunn. These funds are used on our campus as follows:

  • Innovative Learning Programs — PiE gifts help fund Gunn’s innovative BEAM program, Orchestra, Audio Production, and Broadcast Media. PiE dollars are funding Gunn’s science lab tech to ensure that all students have a great experience in lab science. By supporting these electives and programs, PiE donors help Gunn offer its students many opportunities to pursue and hone their interests, and reduces the class size in all electives classes
  • Supportive Guidance Staff — Donations to PiE fund Gunn’s general counseling time, CASSY counseling, the Yes! program, SELF program, and Focus on Success.
  • College and Career Counseling — PiE funds double the resources available to help students with college counseling and post-graduation pathways. PiE contributions to general counseling help make counselors available to support all students’ post-high-school plans

Your 2020-21 Gunn PiE Representatives are Sonya Bradski, Laura Wingard, Heewon Park, Lucinda Brommersma, Victoria Chang, Audrey Gold, Susy Kim, Ana Eng, Patrick Sullivan, and Joy Hinton. Questions about PiE? Please email them at

Some of the programs and roles described above are based on the prior, in-person learning model. As plans evolve during the pandemic, these programs may be offered virtually or adapted as the school year progresses.

“Gunn High School would be a different school without the generous support from Partners in Education. With the donations to PiE from our wonderful parents and community members, Gunn is able access additional counseling services for our students. We are able to offer a strong elective program highlighted by innovative teaching and learning. We so appreciate the high value our community places on high-quality teaching and learning and the positive impact it has on all of our students.”
