GFS has been honored with the SupportMusic Merit Award from the NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.
GFS is profoundly alive with the energy of the arts. Creativity and performance are woven into our culture—every day, across every division. The choir tours internationally, the theater program takes on classic musicals and modern masterworks from around the world, and the art department transforms the campus into a giant art gallery each spring.
