    Gilbert Public Schools introduces Gilbert Accelerated Middle School at Gilbert High School.  This is a unique opportunity for 7th and 8th-grade students, to be challenged academically, in a supportive environment built on a love of learning, preparing students for a successful future in high school and beyond.

    You are invited to join us in the Gilbert Auditorium for an information night to learn more.  The information night will be of interest to parents and families of students currently in 6th and 7th grade who would like to learn more about this new opportunity.

    What is Gilbert Accelerated Middle School?

    Students will be immersed in honors and accelerated curriculum with access to the resources of a comprehensive high school, while in a supportive cohort of other 7th and 8th-grade students.  The learning experience is both academically rigorous and well-rounded, based on the application of knowledge and reflection, project-based learning, critical thinking, cross-curricular portfolio building, and student-centered learning approaches.  Students gain access to the instructional expertise of high school/college-level faculty and are encouraged and supported to develop strong leadership and study skills, preparing them for a successful future in high school and beyond.
