• Your child will be cared for, supported and believed in.

    Whether they need a hug or a high-five, our students have the support they need to thrive. They have a place here, and our teachers, staff and administrators will make sure they feel safe, at home and ready to learn exciting things. For our parents who are sending their children to school for the first time, don’t worry: we’re going to watch over your child as we ignite a love of learning and build a strong foundation for what’s next.

  • Choice builds confidence.

    Choice builds confidence. We design our schools and programs to be places where students can explore, experience a sense of belonging, build their identity and contribute to their school community. Discovering subjects that light them up — such as science and technology, Spanish, or gaming and robotics — or learning through an approach that aligns with their needs is the key to unlocking their potential. They begin to see, even in elementary school, where learning can take them. 

     

    GCS is building schools of the future.

    We’re designing innovative schools so that students can be innovative. School bonds have allowed us to continue this work on behalf of our students and our communities. Two of our newest schools, Peck EL School (expeditionary learning that integrates rigorous academics with real-world experiences) and Foust Gaming & Robotics School represent exciting state-of-the-art learning environments for our children. 

     

    Parents and guardians, you are welcome.

    We listen to parents through focus groups and surveys that shed light on what families want for their children. We also invite you in. You are a valued member of our school community and we cannot set our students up for success without your participation. Come see what’s going on in our schools, volunteer, and share in an exciting future.
