Celebrate Middle Level Education Month! The middle school years, ages 10 to 15, are a time of some of the most rapid changes in physical, intellectual, and moral growth for humans, second only to the growth that occurs from birth to age two. The skills, habits, and values established during this time of life will directly impact a student's chances to be a lifelong learner ready for college, career, citizenship, and a bright future. For our students to be academically and personally successful, a supportive environment both at home and at school is required. Visit www.amle.org/mlem for ideas for families, schools, and communities to celebrate.
Please visit the GCS school choice informational page for full details on applying for "school choice" and lottery results for the 2019-20 school year.
