HEAD OF SCHOOL'S CORNER

As we look ahead to school in just a few weeks, there is much to be excited about in the coming year. We have had a productive summer planning a number of initiatives and new programs that will enhance the Gulliver experience for all of our students. >>More on the ways we're adding to the "Gulliver advantage."

Not Your Average After-School Program!

Our students have unique access to Enrichment classes that will allow them to pursue a new hobby, indulge in their current interests, or simply have fun! When the school day is over, students have the option to partake in martial arts, ballet, swimming, youth sports or a variety of other activities. A new offering this year is Quest for Space, taught by Ms. Rodriguez, a member of Space Center Houston's Space Educator Exploration Crew. Gulliver is the only Florida school offering it. With so much to choose from, there's something for everyone! >>Choose your Enrichment.
