Boys have very specific educational and developmental needs, and Gilman has spent 125 years tailoring age-appropriate learning experiences to meet those needs. Whether it is in the classroom, on the field, or in the community, every minute of every Gilman school day helps boys to grow to become principled young men.
Learning at Gilman is an adventure that celebrates boys. Gilman's dynamic curriculum encourages each boy at each stage of his educational, emotional, and social development to discover his own innate talents and interests. Nothing a boy does here is considered extracurricular: lessons learned in the chemistry lab or English classroom are as vital as lessons learned on the playing field, in the art studio, or at a soup kitchen.
