WELCOME TO GHS FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL
From my first visit to campus, it was abundantly clear that Gifft Hill School truly uses its mission statement as a compass for all that happens at our school. Our island community provides unique environmental, historic, and cultural resources that allow GHS students to engage deeply in their own learning as they simultaneously contribute to building a more resilient, sustainable, and compassionate community.
A talented and dedicated faculty and staff support and empower our students while igniting their passion for learning. Through a range of academic pathways and a robust set of co-curricular opportunities, students are challenged to work past self-imposed boundaries, broaden their perspectives, and build skills and habits of mind that will serve them individually and in their future roles as global citizens.
GHS is committed to building and maintaining a diverse community, one that encourages respectful discourse and the sharing of each individual’s unique experiences and perspectives. A GHS education prepares students to enter today’s world more fully recognizing how they can positively impact their community while they seek and embrace the experiences and talents of others.
As you make your way around our website you will learn more about GHS’s unique and exciting programs for students as young as two years of age to young adults ready to make their way off to college or following their passion in other meaningful ways. As you view these pages, I invite you to see the great possibility of a Gifft Hill School education.
