GFS student tour guide Ella Shay

Ella, Class of 2023

Meet Your Tour Guide

In addition to serving as a Student Tour Guide leader, Ella (grade 11) is active in Anno (the yearbook) and is an Upper School club leader for Book Buds. She also plays Soccer and Lacrosse!

Ella is in her third year at GFS, and enjoys the connections she makes with her peers and her teachers. She fondly remembers her eighth-grade camping trip, ninth-grade orientation, and Upper School movie nights as some of her favorite school experiences.

"GFS is unique because of its community," she says. "Everyone truly cares about one another, from teachers to classmates, and members of other grades. When I was new, I felt like an important part of the community after the end of my first week."
