From The Gilbert School

As Head of School, it is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to The Gilbert School community. The Gilbert School is a unique and wonderful, private 7-12 comprehensive middle/high school. Set in the picturesque Litchfield Hills, The Gilbert School is equidistant to Boston and New York City as well as many excellent institutions of higher education. Our school has a rich history, dedicated faculty and staff, a supportive community and an International Residency Program. At The Gilbert School, it is our belief that all students can be successful, and we cultivate this through placing value on the academic, physical, and social/emotional needs of each student. We strive for our students to be productive citizens in a complex and global society and work with staff to ensure high rigor and standards through project-based learning. Our school has achieved Silver Medal status and ranked in the Top Ten Per Cent of American High Schools.
