From Gilman School

Founded in 1897 as the nation's first country day school, Gilman School is a PK-12 private independent day school for boys. Our mission is to unlock the greatness within each boy by educating the entire boy—mind, body, and spirit.

Our pursuit of excellence in all we do, our rich and comprehensive program, our immeasurably talented and interesting faculty and students, and our belief in the character traits embodied by the Gilman Five—Honor, Integrity, Respect, Humility, and Excellence—form the foundation of a school dedicated to helping boys of promise grow into men of character.
