GALS is a unique model of movement-based learning and positive gender focus combined with a powerful academic experience.  As the first and only single gender public middle school in Colorado, GALS Middle School shares a campus with GALS High School, and is part of the Denver network which includes The Boys School of Denver (also grades 6-8).  In the heart of Denver, GALS Middle School is in its tenth year and holds the strong value of our students being well known and well cared for.  Our inputs include a morning movement module in which all students and faculty participate, a team of therapeutic counselors to support all students and families navigate barriers to success, and a core-course focused on social emotional development called GALS Series/BOYS Series. We have an extremely diverse student body, not only in race, ethnicity and socio-economic status, but also in life experience and learning levels, and we draw from every corner of the city.  Our curriculum incorporates the seamless integration of academics, social, emotional and relational programming, and physical mastery in a healthy, competitive environment through lessons of Power, Flexibility, Focus, and Balance. We are seeking a Head of School who is a strong and compassionate leader with a student centered focus whose collaborative skills can maintain and grow our special culture to meet our mission of empowering all students to succeed academically, live boldly, lead confidently, and thrive physically.
