Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) is an independent JK to Grade 12 day school that is supported by a caring and thriving community.
As a proud International Baccalaureate (IB) World Continuum School, and a member of the Round Square, we offer our students an internationally recognized 'gold standard’ of education. This whole-child approach creates global thinkers who are committed, creative and compassionate leaders and stewards of the world. We are committed to helping each student become their best self—whoever that may be—by encouraging them to explore, challenging them, and celebrating their differences.
The foundation of GNS lies in our Core Values: Truth, Courage, Caring, Community and Individuality. These principles guide each member of the “GNS Family,” as we ensure the school remains an exceptional place for students, parents, families, alumni, faculty and staff. Working with GNS means joining a community that fosters a collaborative, caring, innovative and inclusive culture where learning and professional development are life-long passions.
We are looking for like-minded individuals to join our team who will share in our passion for preparing outstanding citizens of character who will contribute to the world through their leadership, a commitment to service, and an understanding that we are all responsible for the future of our communities.
