The Gordon School

Confident risk-takers

In each academic discipline, Gordon students are lovingly challenged to stretch beyond their comfort zones and take risks, knowing that their teachers - and fellow students - have their backs.


Kindergarteners are responsible for the care of multiple garden beds, second graders poll the community to find out what makes an exceptional picture book, fifth graders learn ballroom dance, and seventh graders share vulnerable and moving poetry at a student-produced open mic - and that’s just scratching the surface.

In the arts, science, humanities, math, Spanish, athletics and more, Gordon gives its students multiple opportunities every year to explore their interests and develop new ones. That's true after school as well, where inclusive policies guarantee that every student has a chance to experience the thrill of being center stage and center field.
