High School Senior: There is a variety of academics at my school. From classes to math essentials, to AP level classes, there are classes for everyone. The teachers are all very educated in their subjects. They know the material very well. Some teachers give more work than others, but it's always a manageable amount. Almost every teacher has a set extra help time or offers it at least once a week, or when needed.

Parent: We are a newish family to GMWS (parent-child, then Kindergarten and now 1st grade) and the education is grounded in age and developmental appropriate approaches and is founded with such lively, daily intention. The community aspect is phenomenal and the communication is open, the decisions transparent, and the leadership evolving.

Middle School Student: I love this school! I am currently in sixth grade here, and this is my first year. The staff and kids are so friendly and the school community is the most welcoming.
You do have to wear a uniform which is kind of annoying, but it’s a beautiful uniform and is pretty comfortable.
I wish we had bells for the start of every period and had classes farther apart, which is an odd wish, but I’d like it to be kind of a, “Okay class, head to your classes! See you later!” But, no. Well, we switch for 5-8 graders and the younger grades have specials as well, but we come back in between most classes to homeroom.
Overall, this school is amazing though! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
(This school is Nursery, Preschool, and K-8, and I know the school profile here says it starts at pre-k, but they have nursery as well.)
