Welcome to middle school at TGS. The middle school years can be challenging. Students face more demanding work with higher expectations and rigor in the classroom. They also learn to communicate more effectively, think critically, and make connections in a more independent manner. They do this while bursts of emotional and physical changes are taking place that make the teen years some of the toughest, but also rewarding and fun. The faculty and staff at The Gilbert School shares this journey with students and parents with a focus on being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe in a caring school environment.
