I have two children; one of whom is a student in a local public high school (his choice). My youngest began GDS as a kindergartner in 2013. As a parent who has had children in both private and public school systems, I can unequivocally say that the education my youngest child is receiving at GDS is ...  Read more

As a parent of a student who graduated from Gaston Day School in 2012 and one who will graduate in 2015, I agree with the majority of the reviews but was AMUSED at the review regarding the colleges that students go on to attend. Dartmouth, Princeton, Northwestern University, Boston University, Vassar, ...  Read more

What an amazing year we have had at Gaston Day. My son's Kidergarden teacher and assistant are excellent. They have focused on teaching him subjects as well as teaching him social behavioral skills and life lessons. They are very communicative so I always feel like I am connected to his daily activities ...  Read more

I graduated from Gaston Day in 2002 and was fully prepared when I attended college. Before attending Gaston Day, I went to another Independent School and it was not living up to what was promised--hence me going to Gaston Day. I am still in contact with teachers and fellow classmates from my time there. ...  Read more

I can honestly say that ...  Read more

It's been a fantastic investment in character development, study skills, college preparation and global consciousness.

Gaston Day provided a wonderful school experience, I was a student there for 10 years and let me just say that it is the best education I could have imagined. Now that I'm in college I use lessons I learned at GDS every day in my classes and in my social life. Thanks to Gaston Day I have wonderful memories ...  Read more

Our family has nothing but great things to say about Gaston Day. Rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and strong leadership are just a few of Gaston Day's strengths. Our children love the close knit environment. We have watched our children become independent, compassionate, learned and well-rounded ...  Read more

Gaston Day could be a great school. For the most part, the teachers are kind, compassionate, and hard-working. However, administrators make curricular and academic decisions in order to placate delusional parents. The school fears the loss of their paying student population, most of whom are truly just ...  Read more
