GSMST is a very diverse and open-minded. The students and teachers here are very accepting of all races, religions, sexualities, and genders. Prejudice is not tolerated at all. GSMST is also a very rigorous school. Graduation requirements include: successfully completing a science fair project, a junior fellowship experience (semester-long internship), and a senior capstone experience (year-long internship), as well as having four elective units including two foreign language, five science units including chemistry, physics, and AP biology, four math units including AP calculus, four social studies units including AP macro- and micro- economics, and four language arts units including AP lang or lit. This is a hard school, but the perfect one for hardworking students, and it really prepares students for college.
Great school to send your child! You child would certainly come out of there FULLY prepared Academically and personally for any University challenge with ease! Yes, the school is challenging in the initial process as it is very demanding, but it is part of all the preparation process for the rigor of any University life.
Things can get really stressful, especially in Junior year! But if you can handle the stress and make it out with a decent GPA it's totally worth the effort. You'll learn how to handle the stress and assignments from experience, but if you're really into clubs and extracuriculars you might not want to take all of the hardest classes at once.
