Wellness at Gilman

We are very excited to share that the new Wellness page on our website is live! Members of our community can learn more about Gilman's philosophy for holistic wellness at the School, some of our signature programs, and the faculty and staff who make up our wellness teams. This page is only beginning, and we envision it becoming a hub for our community. The content we anticipate adding will relate to specialized academic and social-emotional support, the Health Center, resources for employees, and resources for families.
