Academics

GW Community School offers an innovative college preparatory curriculum that emphasizes application of knowledge, not merely assimilation of information. Courses are student-centered and designed to equip students with the skills they will need to succeed in life and in institutes of higher learning. Students will practice peer mediation and develop leadership skills in a structured environment. They will participate in community service activities and benefit by having members of the community participate in school activities.
