"Our Student Life goals are in complete harmony with the GMVS mission statement; we provide a safe healthy environment where students can develop and thrive. As dorm parents, advisors, coaches and teachers we work to positively challenge, support and guide each student."
Dean of Students
GMVS is a small, friendly 24-hour community in which students and teachers live, train, study and work together in an atmosphere of trust and support. We pride ourselves on our diverse and international student body. Our day students (approximately one third of our student body) and boarding students come from as far away as Japan and Australia, and build lifelong friendships at GMVS with peers from a variety of cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. One of the keys to the quality of life at GMVS is the open communication that takes place among teachers, coaches and students. Community meeting, held once a week, enables the faculty, staff and student body to gather to address concerns and make announcements. In addition, students often work together to arrange dish duty after meals and cooperate closely to replace one another to accommodate racing schedules.
GMVS is an exceptional high school experience; athletically, academically and in terms of character development it is wonderful. Students accept a high level of responsibility for making the school work; athletically, academically and socially students are challenged everyday. Our graduates are well practiced in time management, problem solving and collaboration.
