As a parent of a 6th grader at GPA, my beliefs is that the 6th grade staff goes above and beyond to keep education, dedication , moral and ethical stability for each student and i am thankful Mrs.It

This is a really great school and the staff is just as awesome. Class size is small so each child can get the attention they need. I wish they would do more parent involved activity within the individual classrooms. But that is a minor drawback being IB I understand the focus is on academics, and teaching our children to be the best they can be. My child enjoyed her first year at GPA. I look forward to what they have coming up in 2013-2014.

My oldest son started back in 08 when the school first opened. Since then my other son has joined him. I have gotten a chance to interact with Kindergaren, 1st and 2nd grade teachers and have been both pleased and impressed. The Teachers are wonderful and strive to make sure you are aware of your childrens progress. We have moved to Washington and I am said that my youngest son won't be able to experience the education that my 2 oldest have received. A wonderful school, your kids will love it.

Smaller size classrooms allow for more one-on-one with the students and teachers. Students have a better opportunity to participate in extra-cirricular activities than they might at a larger school. Staff and administrators can get to know the students better as it is a K-8 school as opposed to elementary/middle schools.

My daughter started at GPA two years ago in Kindergarten. She loves the school and teachers. I couldn't agree more. She has learned so much throughout the IB units and the IB learner profile traits. We love GPA!
