Welcome to GOAL High School Brighton

Meet the dean

Joseph "Joe" Gonzales

Hello! My name is Joe Gonzales and I am the Dean at the Brighton site. This is my 9th year with GOAL High School. I was previously in the academic coach and social emotional generalist role before becoming a Dean in the Denver Region. My purpose here is to give students every opportunity to succeed with our program and I truly believe we have the best staff in place to make that goal a reality. For fun I love watching anything Disney with my sons Noah and Max, and we especially love rooting for the Broncos, Avalanche, Nuggets and Rockies!
