I am thrilled you are considering Gordon School for your family! It is a community in which I followed my son; and one in which has embraced our family–the silly, the tired, the optimist in us all.
My ‘why Gordon’ will always be looked at first and foremost through my parent lens. It is my own family’s personal sense of belonging, knowing that we all benefit from this community–through educational experiences, Gordon’s multicultural curriculum, the sharing of traditions, faiths, cultures, and embracing it all; all while having tough conversations. And providing my shy, overly observant, and always listening child a true sense of self and consent.
As one community member shared upon applying to Gordon, "And we know that if we are only so lucky to be part of the community, not only will Gordon embrace our family, but we, too, will embrace all that is Gordon."
And this affirmation could not be more true or unerring. As a parent, and as an administrator, I am forever grateful to this community: the mission; the environment; the faculty; the colleagues; the friends; this school.
Our admissions team looks forward to learning more about your family's story and stewarding you through the admission process at Gordon. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office.
