In addition to a vigorous academic program, the curriculum at Gulf Stream School encompasses arts and athletics. Teachers encourage students to explore their interests and test the limits of their abilities within a safe environment. Recognition of both effort and accomplishment motivates students to focus on and enjoy the process of learning. The program itself is structured, yet flexible, with an emphasis on the development of basic skills. English, mathematics, social studies, science, foreign language, computer, art, music, and P.E. are required subjects. As preparation for long-term, purposeful involvement in the local and global communities, each class undertakes at least one community service project and many of our students volunteer their time to a variety of organizations outside of school as well.
A Gulf Stream education prepares our students to move confidently and successfully into some of the best college preparatory schools in the country. Our graduates are known for their strong writing and study skills. Their many public speaking and performance opportunities also make them especially well-spoken and poised before an audience. Because their curiosity is nurtured and their participation in all aspects of school life is required, Gulf Stream School alumni are well-rounded, lifelong learners.
