For residents living in Central Guam you can go to George Washington High School.

And finally for Southern Guam if you need a safe place to stay you can go to either HS Truman Elementary, and Talofofo Elementary.

Please keep in mind alcohol, weapons and illegal drugs, candles and other flammable devices are prohibited. pets are also forbidden unless they are service animals.
