Upper School

Welcome to The Gow School Upper School!

In the Upper School, our goal is to prepare students in grades 10-12 and Post-Graduate for college or university, and beyond. Our 9th grade is designed as a hybrid year. While students take a high school course load, they receive a more hands on approach from teachers and the Head of the Middle School to instill valuable life skills. As the year progresses, teachers step back as students prepare for their 10th grade year.

In recent years more than half of our graduates have been students who joined Gow as 10th, 11th, or 12th graders. It is our hope that students will achieve success through the advanced course load, whole person development, and a second to none college counseling program.

Our teachers are experienced in working with students who have learning differences and will devote the time to helping children with their college preparatory course load. With advanced courses available across all departments, students core classes include Reconstructive Language, English, History and Science, with electives in Art and Applied Technology.

We take the guess work out of applying to college. With our talented and skilled college counseling staff guiding your child through the common application, standardized testing, essays, and letters of recommendations, we are proud to have a 100% college acceptance rate every year. Students are being accepted to colleges that will support their learning disability and help them thrive.

At Gow we will work every day to reassure you that you have made a great choice in choosing The Gow School!
