My grand children have been at this school for the past 9 years. I have seen them remain motivated academically, but even more so, they have remained "good kids." They are not trying to keep up with the current trends, or acting above their ages, they are true kids. They still like to be with family and spend more time talking to us, then texting to others. As a grand dad, it makes me say, this school is doing great things!

The teachers at this school really care about the students. I like that they encourage my child to learn in different ways; not just in a text book, but a lot of group and hands on activities. Also, the school has a "family style" community; it is nice to feel like we matter.

Both the low ratios and high standards of this school make it an excellent choice for families looking for school that goes beyond the textbooks. GPS is a teaching/mentoring school that invests in every student for their lifetime. It is really a school of excellence!
