    HELp support a record number of Jacket of Excellence WINNERS! 

    Students who demonstrate the best attributes of being a Gondo are awarded a customized academic jacket and honored at a luncheon as a way to recognize and applaud their accomplishments. This tradition, which has been in place since 1984, wouldn't be possible without the help from the community.

    This year a record number of 70 students have achieved the status of a Top Scholar! Community support is needed now more than ever.

    We invite you to sponsor one or more jackets, or support this event by making a donation. The selected students have worked hard to meet the rigorous standards for eligibility.

    School Experience Survey


    The window for the School Experience Survey has opened. It is VERY important that we hear from everyone as the data we collect guides our plans for the school. 

    Students will be bringing home letters that have a code for you to use to do the survey online. If for whatever reason the letter gets lost, you can use 8907 plus the six digit code of your child's birthdate - month, day, year. You only submit one response - even if you have multiple children at the school.

    The window for online submission has been extended until December 14, 2018.

    The deadline for paper surveys to be returned is still December 7th.
