Since 1976, GFS has been a member of The Network of Complementary Schools, a group of public and independent schools that offers its students opportunities to experience learning through varied programs at its member schools. Exposure to academic, cultural, and geographic diversity helps participants to explore new interests, develop new competencies, enhance confidence, broaden perspectives, and grow as individuals.
The Network of Complementary Schools Program is available to all Middle and Upper School students for one and two week programs, respectively. Programs are individually arranged and applications are accepted on a rolling basis in the fall. The application process is non-competitive.
Participating students live with host families or stay in dormitories at their host schools. They attend individualized class schedules and participate fully in their host communities.
