Our 8th grade program is growing!

Gould is thrilled and excited that our 8th grade program is growing!  We are projecting that our enrollment will double this coming year. Gould is increasing our commitment to 8th graders and winter term student-athletes by formalizing learning spaces, growing the faculty, and providing unique age specific programming. Led again this year by Middle School Coordinator and teacher Nancy Barstow, what was once held in one large classroom has expanded to several classrooms occupying the entire first floor of Park Mason. Additional boarding space in Gehring and Davidson are now committed to this group. Several new faculty members have been hired to support the program, including additional humanities, math, science and language teachers. New age-specific programming is being added, especially related to GPS, orientation, and advisory.
If you’re the parent of an incoming 8th grade student, feel free to reach out to Nancy Barstow with any questions. Or speak with Greg or Marcy in Admissions if you know any students who are thinking about becoming Huskies in the future!
Gould is a small, co-ed, independent boarding school for grades 8-PG.  We are passionate about preparing academically motivated students for college, helping them to become independent-minded, ethical citizens who will lead lives of purpose, action, excellence, and compassion in a dynamic world.
