The school


Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary Schools hosts both Team 1325 Inverse Paradox and the regional International Business Technology Program, a program structured to both enhance learning through the use of technology and place strong emphasis on having solid business skills. Historically, our team has been strong in the business aspect of FIRST and has started to utilize our business resources within the IBT program.
