    Gann is a wonderful institution! I truly love it here.

    Academics: The points of study are interesting, intelligent, and practical. I feel like I am learning something new and important every day. I wholeheartedly appreciate the things I learn and the freedom I have to chose what I want to learn. My love for Gann's academics are only solidified by the teachers.

    I love Gann so much, I wake up every day excited to go to school. The teachers here sincerely care about you and want you to succeed, and the community is so amazing and supportive. Gann students are passionate and driven people and thinkers, and unafraid to show it. Most of us are involved in multiple activities outside the classroom, it's pretty abnormal not to do so. Going to a pluralistic Jewish day school is a unique experience, I can happily say that I have friends of many different Jewish beliefs and denominations who are all willing to engage with each other. Gann has shaped me into a thoughtful person who is ready to go out into the world and follow my passions in college and beyond. I value my time here so much and I wouldn't have it any other way.
    Gann Academy teachers are experts in their field, with the majority having at least a Masters or PhD. Additionally, the school often brings in subject-matter experts (either in person or via Skype calls) on the topics being taught -- poets, award-winning authors, musicians and composers, historians, and even the Green Prince to discuss his perspective on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The atmosphere reminds me of a college campus more than a high school at times.
