School Reviews

  • Recommended January 25, 2014 - I can''t say enough about GVS to let the world know how future-altering it would be to experience the curriculum with others. It doesn''t just benefit the child - it benefits the adult going through the process with them. I don''t like to say "teacher and student" now, because this was such a co-learning, collaborative experience. It was in alignment with the values we have as a family and it addressed nuances of my children''s personal path to a value system. If your child finishes out high school with the Peace and Diversity courses under their belt, they are prepared to go out and make the world a better place! Both of my children elected to go to university after their GVS studies and this school has made them enter with an awareness of the world around them and their part in that microcosm that the average college student struggles to understand. Parents be informed: this is not an internet-learning experience only. This is a hands-on, fully participatory journey through learning for everyone involved! - Posted by Parent
