Academic Excellence

When students are at the center of learning, curiosities are piqued, minds flourish, and character is developed. This is Gulliver. And this has been our philosophy since our school was established nearly a century ago.

Gulliver comprises a community of students, administrators, faculty and staff who are committed to lifelong learning. We are a community that is rooted in tradition and also embraces the latest technology, all with a goal of helping all students achieve the highest levels of academic and personal success.

What continues to distinguish Gulliver is our rigorous and varied curriculum that is combined with personalized instruction. Students have endless opportunities to challenge themselves, whether in arts, clubs, athletics or extra-curricular activities. Character development is woven throughout the Gulliver educational experience so that students possess respect, tolerance and responsibility. In short, our holistic approach to education means we nurture each child so they reach their fullest potential.

Our programs allow students to broaden their horizons and explore interests through hands-on, real-world application. We provide students with the tools and skills to learn to think critically and solve problems so that they thrive both in their careers and in our complex world, regardless of the path they choose to pursue.

At Gulliver, self-discovery is as paramount as a stellar education. Students are encouraged to explore, connect and collaborate. They become inspirational thinkers, catalysts of change, and leaders who are committed to making the world a better place. Community service, cultural competence and integrity are hallmarks of the Gulliver journey and are values that guide our students through life.

Our academic excellence is enhanced by the philanthropic investment of our school community, whose support continues to expand our exceptional programs and the experiences of our students and faculty.
