Welcome!

We invite you to begin your virtual on-demand visit with a welcome from Head of School Russell Shaw. Next, scroll down for delightful greetings and messages from your grandchildren or special friends as well as their classmates. Then, hear what GDS students have to say about what things they treasure most at school. Further down, please enjoy a select mix of performing and visual arts treats. Finally, get a glimpse into some of the other ways GDS students are thriving on our unified campus. Please consider making a gift to GDS today, and help us continue providing many more cherished experiences for our students. Have a wonderful day!
