A GDS education engages students with real-world problems and motivates them by placing them at the center of their learning. It teaches them to collaborate across difference, empowers them to connect with resources both at school and beyond our campus, challenges them to think critically and creatively, and prepares them to be active citizens in the world.

At GDS, we believe that young people achieve most when they are enthusiastic about their studies, work closely with their teachers, and involve themselves in a range of activities and so our program ensures these opportunities. We strive to instill moral and ethical values that result in an appreciation of others and a willingness to serve the larger community. We seek to graduate young men and women eager for a lifetime of learning and who can work independently but value cooperation.

The High School cultivates in its students a deep appreciation of the humanities, mathematics and science, and the arts.
