Attending GDS has been, and forever will be, a decision I won’t regret. Not only has GDS prepared me exceptionally well for college and beyond, but it has also helped me create lifelong relationships that I will continue to cherish.
GDS gives autonomy to students to shape their own experiences. This is crucial to becoming an effective leader later in life. GDS taught me the value of public speaking and organizational skills and the confidence to tackle any challenge.
My teachers inspired me because they challenged me every step of the way, but they also believed in me. GDS gave me many opportunities for leadership. It was a place where I learned to love being on a great team, setting goals, and working together to achieve them.
At GDS, students are treated as individuals, not just numbers. While a student, I grew my confidence while taking advantage of learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. I learned to never say no to something new and how to advocate for myself.
I’ve been at GDS since kindergarten, and I love the community here— I wish I didn’t have to leave! GDS has shaped me as a person, and I wouldn’t be who I am today without all the amazing people I met there.
