"Gill has been a wonderful experience for our children! The teachers are top notch. They challenge the students but also provide support when it is needed. The campus is beautiful and creates many chances for hands-on learning.” Parent Review

"Every little contribution of time and effort is appreciated and it makes one an integral part of the Gill community. It also shows my children that I have an interest in their overall experience and education at school and not just in their academic success. Being involved in the school is one of the most rewarding and fun experiences I have given myself."
