From Our Principal

Welcome to Gardner Pilot Academy! The faculty and staff join me in saying we are happy to have you as a part of the Gardner family.  


As a school community we believe deeply in our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and academic excellence. This means that as a school we stand for kindness, inclusion and social justice for ALL.  In recent months there has been an increase in hateful language and incidents of harassment and intimidation across our country.  At GPA we feel strongly that we send the message to all of our students, families, partners and our community that we do not tolerate any form of discrimination, harassment or hate speech and that we will vigorously implement and actively enforce our safe and welcoming school policy to ensure that all of its daily operations are characterized by fairness, respect, and equity.  It is important to note that the Boston Public Schools and the laws of Massachusetts protect the rights of every student and their family to be educated in an environment free of discrimination and bias. It is the expectation of every member of our community to treat everyone with mutual respect and kindness. We are asking that every family review our Safe and Welcoming School Policy with their child and talk about the expectations for ensuring that GPA is safe, welcoming and inclusive to all.  

We welcome your participation and support this year and encourage you to become involved on our School Parent Council and our School Governing Board. Gardner parents are our partners in the important job of educating the children of our community.
