Leadership has been defined in many ways, but central to the definition is being an “agent of change.” At GPA, we are all change agents who see ourselves as believers, dreamers, and optimists about the future. We believe that together, we can make a difference for all of our students and families.

GPA is comprised of highly skilled and knowledgeable educators who are deeply committed to our vision of excellence. Teachers at GPA receive additional time for collaboration with colleagues and extensive professional development. Our staff are decision-makers about curriculum and assessment, always considering our population of students and their families. Teachers are critical members of teams who decide how to use our autonomies in hiring, budget, governance and school schedule. GPA deeply believes our teachers are the educational reform we need to invest in for the future of our students.
