For Students

999768_624085794278880_262435150_nWe dreamt of a place where:

  • Young persons learn how to learn and live a full life enjoying all that they see around them
  • A student is not a number
  • Teachers are cared for and haven´t lost their love for teaching
  • Teachers aren´t harassed by test scores but free to teach and learn so that students are proficient and enriched in all that they do
  • Young persons learn to research and learn on their own
  • Students create and imagine and play and smile and laugh
  • No one is bored or overworked
  • No one is bullied by a classmate or an adult
  • EVERY PERSON, young or old, feels WANTED

We dreamt of Gillingham Charter School. On June 7, 2011, the dream came true. Welcome to our school.
