Garden City School provides ALL students the opportunity to learn and grow in classrooms that are welcoming and safe. Collaborative conversations, laughter, questioning, and sharing support learning, which is facilitated by teachers for individual students through targeted and appropriate instruction. Students progress and develop agency through engagement in rigorous, authentic tasks, which allow choice and voice. Staff, students, and families work together to set and reach goals for each student and the school community at large.
Greetings, and welcome to Garden City Elementary School! Whether you are a past, present or future GCS family, thank you for visiting our website. We are a unified community of learners who work hard every day in the interest of our students. As GCS Bulldogs, we all strive to show PRIDE in everything we do. For us, PRIDE stands for Participation, Respect, Inclusion, Dedication, Excellence. Those five core qualities are alive in our school each and every day. At GCS, every individual is important, and we believe that strong relationships paired with hard work in a supportive, caring environment provides an excellent school for all. Working together, we will be able to realize our school’s vision: At GCS, Bulldog PRIDE drives academic and social emotional growth for ALL students. We hope you’ll partner with us in our very important work! Sincerely, Bryan Byerlee, Principal
