GBMS provides an amazing atmosphere for learning. The teachers are seasoned professionals - warm, nurturing, academically focused. My son (alum) developed a strong sense of self and purpose through his work in the primary program; with his Montessori foundation, he is a confident, kind, well-adjusted student in the public school system. My daughter (current student) can't wait to go to her classroom every day - so much gratifying work to be done! The school community is diverse and supportive - a very special place indeed!
