    Everyone should learn this way - by taking classroom material and applying it to real world experiences. GCE's project-based learning model has a vein of social consciousness running deep through the heart of the curriculum. The school is not only dedicated to educating and enriching minds, it is committed to promoting creativity, exemplifying compassion, encouraging independence, and raising awareness. The diverse atmosphere is accepting and lends itself to varying viewpoints and classroom discussions. After meticulously researching almost every high school in the Chicagoland area, we stopped looking after experiencing GCE Lab School.

    GCE Lab School is a really different school but different in a good way. The teaching style is totally different from CPS. I like how the school (students and faculty) come together as a community within the school. We have morning meetings that we call Soapbox, where you literally stand on a soap box and talk about news and daily events and any announcements you might have. We also have open discussions about a wide range of things from politics to our favorite foods. I'm looking forward to my next few years at GCE and I'm enjoying my experience at the school.
    Our son Ausar is the first-year sophomore at GCE Labe school. We've never seen him this happy in any school even kindergarten. Every day Ausar comes home, he eagerly does his homework and goes to bed on time so that he will be well rested for school the next day. This is something he does on his own. He also brags about his teachers every day. We can't put into words what an amazing school GCE is, how it has helped transform Ausar in so many ways.

    Thanks GCE for helping us mold a happy, well adjusrted teen!
