Student-teacher relationships are critical at GDS. To that end, we ensure that each of our students is supported through smaller classroom models and is offered plenty of time for one-on-one interaction.
Our main entry grades are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 4th, 6th, and 9th. In addition to our entry years, we expand enrollment slightly in 1st grade and 3rd grade. Students may be admitted into non-entry grades if space is available.
For admittance into pre-k and kindergarten, we require students to be age 4 by September 1 of the year they would start at GDS.
The GDS dress code is informal, and intentionally so. We believe that students do their best work when they feel free to express themselves whether it be in classroom learning or in what they choose to wear to school.
Yes! Our extended day program provides a space before and after school where LMS students can build community among their peers, participate in classes that extend and complement their school day, and engage in activities which deepen their understanding of self and the world around them.
