The School-Home Partnership
Gillen Brewer's unwavering commitment to each family is a cornerstone of The Family Program. The School's philosophy is founded on the belief that changing the life of a child can only be achieved through meeting the needs of the family as well. GBS' goal for parents is that they develop an understanding of their child and acquire the information and strategies with which they can be his/her strongest and most supportive advocate. As both mentor and partner to parents, the school strives to provide a network of resources and to develop a collaborative relationship which fosters awareness and sensitivity and enhances the progress of each individual child.

"After almost 30 years of experience in this field, what I know for certain is that the greatest successes we have had with our students have come from a close partnership with our families. These partnerships flourish when family involvement, participation, communication, follow through, and alignment of realistic goals are shared. This may be a tall order, but our students need and deserve this level of commitment from all of the adults in their lives. The school-home partnership can be transformational for all of us." -- Donna Kennedy, Former Head of School
