Gilbert Public Schools (GPS) is recognized for its rigorous, well-defined curriculum, and for the quality of innovative programs and extra-curricular activities. Across the curriculum, critical thinking skills are fostered in students in an effort to equip them with effective problem-solving and decision-making abilities. The curriculum also incorporates state-of-the-art technology tools and integrated instruction to prepare students for college and career readiness.
GPS is proud to be a leader in the state as evidenced by our letter “A” grade from the Arizona Department of Education and recent acknowledgement by College Board as an Advanced Placement Honor Roll District. These high marks are indications of the quality of the total K-12 educational experience provided by teachers, administrators and support staff, and reflect the high level of parent involvement and support our schools receive.
GPS continues to work diligently to provide standards-based instruction so that student learning is at the level of rigor required by the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards. Teachers collaborate and meet regularly in their Professional Learning Communities to create and implement research-based instructional strategies to support high levels of learning for all students.
We look forward to our continued partnership as we strive to provide an exemplary education for GPS students.
