Discover GSB

GSB is an independent, non-sectarian, college-preparatory day school serving approximately 650 students from age three through grade 12. We offer a comprehensive and balanced curriculum, and we work to instill in our students a set of values that include compassion, service, responsibility, and integrity.
Quite simply, Gill is a school community like no other. Our campus is a 208-acre classroom that provides the space and the opportunity for every one of our students, in every step of their journey, to build exceptional academic skills and discover their own unique untapped talents and interests. Imagine working with your classmates to transform your school building into an African Savannah… traveling to the Galapagos with your classmates… or writing your own play and directing it. The possibilities are endless at Gill, and opportunity is everywhere.
 
We look forward to working with your family throughout the application process. We have a number of opportunities to visit campus throughout the year, and applying is easy. If you have questions, please contact our office for help. We look forward to working with you.
