"With Directed Independent Studies (DIS), Global Online Academies (GOA), and clubs, the school offers countless opportunities for us to find and experiment with what we want to do and promote respect and diversity as we support each other in these activities."
"I think what makes GFS unique is, despite the reputation of the very competitive nature, everyone here really wants to see everyone else succeed, and that goes for both teachers and students."
"Although not all GFS students, teachers, and administrators are religious by any means, the influence of Quaker values in our school has been life-changing in giving each of our students a well-rounded, unique education."
"The community inspires me to be my best. It is hard to not want to be involved in extracurriculars and your school work when you see everyone around you doing the same."
"Everyone here, from teachers to coaches to your peers, have committed themselves to finding the way that will make you shine, which may be different from others."
"We are weird, sometimes loud, vibrant, and true hard workers."
"I really enjoy that everyone knows each other or is friends with one another."
