We are excited to announce GBS's new monthly blog, written by our Director of Middle School and Enrollment, Amy Salomon, who has the unique perspective of being both the mother of a daughter with special needs as well as an educator with years of experience in the NYC special education world.
Leading Private Special Education School in NYC
Gillen Brewer School is a family-oriented, 12-month, special education program on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC, for children ages Pre-K - 8th grade who have a wide variety of language-based and non-verbal learning disabilities. We provide an integrated, developmentally appropriate, academic-therapeutic program that includes speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, counseling, and social groups.
Your meaningful donation supports our academic and therapeutic program, as well as: student and family therapy, specials (such as art, science, technology, and music), health and fitness programs at Asphalt Green, maintenance of our facilities and technology, and community partnerships with organizations such as Art Farm.
We were thrilled to welcome two distinguished guests from the art world to the GBS Art Show! Danielle Kisluk-Grosheide, Henry R. Kravis Curator at the Metropolitan Museum, and Margi Schwartz, Co World-Wide Head of European Sculpture and Works of Art at Sotheby's toured the installation with GBS Art Teacher, Erika Tobin, and then visited the classrooms at GBS.
