    Featured Review: Parent says We chose Bryn Mawr to start our daughter’s educational journey, and having almost completed her kindergarten year, I can say with wholehearted enthusiasm that BMS is a special place.

    Featured Review: Parent says My daughter has been going to GCS for 7 years ago and is moving on to the Middle School next year. She is thriving academically and socially. The academics are challenging, but not overwhelming. She has become an exceptional writer and has fallen in love with STEM and the fine arts.

One of them was just a little too over rigorous (in ways that weren't academic but unreasonably meticulous at times......-They need to add mirrors in the girl's bathroom and add new durable curtains to the changing room.
