Head of School Joe Zaluski has been a great leader for the school. We were concerned about moving our two children in different grades to the school from the Northeast. He has made sure that the transition for each of them has gone very smoothly.
GSS has a lot of judgmental parents who pass their attitudes on to their kids. A lot of holier than thou, wine drinking, unhappy mothers with brats who don't know the golden rule to treat others as they would like to be treated. The mothers and their daughters are NOT kind, their MO is exclusion and the administration/faculty does nothing about it. GSS definitely has its favorite families and it is extremely obvious, so before you enroll your precious child here, please be advised not every kid is painted with the same brush. I am dealing with a psychologist for my child to undue the years of damage caused by GSS social environment and I can assure you I'm not the only parent who has had to deal with this issue.....
My son was bullied by one of their teachers. When I went to the head master with the problem they just blew me off. After a psychologist wrote to the school an evaluation they still kept the teacher knowing this was true.
Gulf Stream school develops kids that are afraid of authority so they do develop a sting sense of determination. I feel that it would be better to develope an inate spence of determination because of encouragement. I did not see much encouragement at Gss
I feel that this school is more about wealthy parents with type A personalities trying to get their kids in an Ivey league school than deveopling strong character traits and encouaging their students to be well rounded compassionate students.
