I love this school. The energy is contagious. The girls are motivated by inspired teachers to bring their best. My daughter entered in 6th grade as a weak to average to student (and not an athlete). She is now a high honors student. In 8th grade, she is finishing her 9th grade math requirements. ...  Read more

I am so excited about GALS! I love the feminist philosophy that is driving the school. The academics are excellent, and the movement is really wonderful for our daughter.

My daughter is in her second year and loves GALS. The culture is helping her grow into a strong/confident young woman. The school has great teachers and high expectations, but has fun every day with movement/athletics as part of the school day. They mix running, yoga/workouts, dance, and games to ...  Read more

We have an 8th grader at GALS. We can't say enough positives with regards to her middle school experience at GALS. She has been encouraged and allowed to grow, mature and learn in an environment that is safe and supportive. GALS has made the middle school years a breeze.

GALS has been the best thing that's happened to my daughter in years. She is thriving socially, emotionally and academically. GALS is a great "fit" for my daughter and the many others who are thriving there!

GALS is not for every girl, but it is definitely for my girl. She thrives at GALS as a whole person: academically, socially and as an individual. One thing I truly appreciate about GALS is that she does not seem to be exposed to socially uncomfortable aspects of middle school life that I see strongly ...  Read more
