The school is a diverse community rooted in the values of courage, integrity, respect, compassion, and excellence, committed to the belief that education takes place not only in the classroom, but on the stage, in the studios, on the fields, and wherever faculty, staff, and students interact.

GSB is committed to recruiting, retaining, and supporting an exceptional faculty and staff who are dynamic educators seeking to foster a love of learning and to bring out the best in all its students, and who are guided by the school’s mission and an understanding that a sense of balance permeates all that the school does.
