GDS Campus Planning

In 2014, GDS embarked on the most significant building project in our 70-year history. With the acquisition of the Safeway site and the former Martens Volvo site, GDS began to plan for the unification of our PK-12 grade school. In January 2017, GDS began to work on pursuing a “special exception” to build a Lower/Middle School on the Safeway site. This would unify the School, which is currently on two campuses, four miles apart.
