Including Boys

It is important to help students grow in their ability to communicate well and establish healthy relationships with male peers. Our coordinate program with our brother school, McCallie School, allows both our students and their students to reap the benefits of a single-sex education while still having an abundant number of ways to interact, work side-by-side, and make lasting friendships.

Hear GPS Head of School Megan Cover and McCallie Head of School Lee Burns discuss the history and importance of our coordinate program.
