Visiting GMS

Due to Covid-19, we do not know yet whether we will offer in-person Open Houses or Campus Visits for families. If we are not able to gather in large numbers, we will instead create smaller gatherings or offer a variety of virtual meetings to enable families to get to know our school and community. Please check back here on September 1, 2020 for updates.

Attend an Open House

The Open House is a wonderful opportunity for you and your family to experience the energy of our students, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the warm atmosphere of our community. This event is for fifth grade families only. We have a Spring Parent Tour designed especially for fourth grade families. To register for an Open House, please create a Ravenna account.

Schedule a Campus Visit

A campus visit is the best way for prospective students to experience a typical school day and gain a personal sense of life at GMS. During her visit, your daughter will be paired with a sixth grade host who will greet her, escort her to classes throughout the morning, and answer her questions. You do not need to submit an application for your daughter to come for a visit. Campus Visits are offered from late September through early January. Parents are welcome to stay on campus for an optional Parent Tour when they bring their daughter for a visit. 

Spring Parent Tours

For fourth grade families who are eager to learn more about The Girls’ Middle School, the Spring Parent Tour provides a preview of GMS before the admission process begins in the fall. This tour showcases how GMS lives our mission and allows you to observe classes during a typical day. In addition to observing teachers and students in action, you will hear from our Head of School and Assistant Head of School who will answer questions about our program and philosophy.
