Our Motto - Id Facere Possumus (We can do it)

Virgil I. Grissom High School was dedicated in 1969 along with Chaffee Elementary and Ed White Junior High School in honor and memory of the Astronauts who lost their lives on January 27, 1967, at Cape Kennedy, Florida, when a flash fire consumed their spacecraft during a full-scale simulation in preparation for the subsequently scheduled launch of their Saturn/Apollo Mission.
