Principal's Message

Being a part of the founding team of Gilroy Prep School fills me with pride every time I walk on campus. From the engaged faces of the children in the classrooms to the enthusiastic teachers employing the best and latest teaching strategies, GPS is designed to provide students with the tools they need to succeed, not only in elementary school, but through college. How could you not love coming to work every day in a place where everyone is excited to be there?

With our sister school, Hollister Prep, our programs are the envy of many of our visitors from other schools, both teachers and school leaders, and our teaching positions are highly sought after. We have an active, supportive parent club, and much more.   Our beautiful library is stocked with hundreds of real books. Students are assessed daily and interventions to help them are immediate. All of our teachers use Whole Brain Teaching methods to provide highly engaging instruction. Those are just a few of the things that make us special.

Thank you for allowing us to educate your child. Thank you for ensuring they are at school ready to learn, dressed for success and on time. If they are in the upper grades, thank you for helping them with their daily reading and homework. Thank you for your volunteerism. Every day that you do something to help us at school is a day that we feel reenergized to continue doing this hard, but gratifying work. With all of us continuing to work together to support the children, our world will be a better place.

Please let me know if you have questions and/or concerns.  I look forward to seeing you throughout the school year.
