    As a parent, I want my children to receive a top quality college preparation, in a friendly, safe, caring school community. Gunston checks off all of these boxes - and more! The campus is beautiful, the faculty is superb, and the kids are wonderful. It has been an incredible experience for not only my son, but for my entire family. Our daughter will certainly follow in her brother's footsteps to Gunston!

    The Gunston School offers a personalized college preparatory experience. The students are kind, supportive, and well-rounded. The faculty are excellent and will always go the extra mile for their students. It is a wonderful school!
    I loved my time at The Gunston School. I was fairly involved in both sports and clubs, and felt included in everything the school did. The campus is secluded so it feels very safe, yet welcoming at the same time. The administration helped me throughout my entire high-school career, and was very approachable. I still keep in contact with administration a few years since graduation. Gunston was definitely a family to me and I am so thankful for everything it provided to me. I was able to travel the world through opportunities offered to me at Gunston, and I did not know how valuable that was until I started college. I also felt highly prepared for college and challenging courses. The teachers prepared me very well for how I would be treated in college, and they respect the students because the students respect them. I feel highly recommend Gunston to anyone that has the ability to attend.
