Doing Our Best for Your Family

Ensuring Faculty and Staff Remain Outstanding.

In our Strategic Plan 2017-2022, we identify six Key Success Factors that are critical to our continued success. One of the most significant factors is Ensuring Faculty and Staff Remain Outstanding:

“At GNS we recognize the role each member of our faculty and staff plays in ensuring every child is known and celebrated as an individual. We are committed to challenging, inspiring and supporting students, allowing them to realize their full potential in academics, arts, athletics and citizenship.

In a rapidly changing and competitive world, we are steadfast in our work to maximize the personal and professional growth of our colleagues. In turn, our teachers are dedicated, caring and collaborative, and always put students first. Each is keenly aware that it is imperative they develop their expertise in an ongoing fashion.”

As a not-for-profit school, our strength is our people. 92% of the tuition fees we collect each year are allocated to ensuring we attract and retain the very best faculty and staff. In turn, they create an unparalleled collective experience for every one of our 700 students. They educate, they motivate, and they inspire. Our teachers see their work at GNS as more than a job; it’s a way of life.
