Posted April 22, 2009

Wonderful, loving, highly-academic and extremely well rounded program. My third grader and Kindergartener have had excellent teachers every year. The Headmaster, faculty, and staff make every effort to recognize and foster support for every child. When issues come up, they are communicated and fairly handled. Having lived in Delray for over 30 years, I feel that there is no other school in the area that compares to GSS academically, artistically, athletically, and in supportive atmosphere. We are proud to be involved in the school and so happy to have our children attending.

My oldest daughter has been at GSS for ten years. What an incredible education she is getting. Incredible teachers! Great athletic program. All the students engaged and involved!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
