    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.

    Gann has been a great environment for students to learn deeply for many years. The teachers are all very supportive of the students and passionate about teaching, and the students are kind to each other and foster an environment of teaching each other. Something teachers say all the time at Gann is that they have learned more from their students than they could have ever imagined, which, from my experience, is not something many teachers say. Gann has a very good college counseling program with patient and helpful teachers. Gann offers many sports, with flexible options for how to get sports credits. One thing that Gann should improve is its diversity, which Gann could maybe do by marketing to a more diverse crowd and having more scholarships.
    My son is smart, but In middle school (grades 6-8) he was a lazy student that earned B or C grades on his report card. At Gann Academy we witnessed a transformation. The teachers encouraged and supported him to reach his full potential. He loved his teachers. Here is one example. He started 9th grade in the lowest level math class. By 12th grade he took the most advanced B/C Calculus class. Gann is also a high school driven by Jewish values. I am glad to say that Gann helped my son to become a more caring individual who tries to help others that are less fortunate than he is.
