My son came to Guyer from Home School. It was a little different and a little scary, but everyone, students and faculty alike, made him feel welcome. The teachers are amazing and the school is beautifully designed. My son even looks forward to his day at school so much so that he hates having to stay home when he is sick. It is an awesome school.

This school is amazing. The design of the school is great, and students will have a lot of opportunities to express themselves.
