"My favorite thing about GFS is the environment that the students create. While I haven't gone to another school before, from what I've heard it's a very accepting and friendly community in comparison to other schools."

"I love the culture of support at GFS. Everyone is challenging themselves in new ways and they are supported in doing so by all those around them."
"I really value the emphasis that GFS puts on creating strong, long-lasting relationships with the communities we are a part of, and the encouragement we receive to find others who share the same passions."
"What makes GFS unique is definitely the connections with the teachers. I feel very comfortable reaching out to any of my teachers if I have questions about any work or material we are covering in class. As a senior, these connections have come in handy when asking for college recommendations."
"When I was looking at other schools before I came to GFS, what made me want to go to GFS so much was the friendliness from every single person I met."
"My favorite thing about GFS is the students' freedom and the encouragement for them to pursue what they are interested in and passionate about."
"We move as a community and you always have a place at GFS, no matter your identity or your opinion."
