Since 1980, The Gregory School has offered a challenging curriculum, small classes, accomplished and dedicated teachers, a pervasive sense of community, and state-of-the-art facilities, all of which create an environment where students mature both intellectually and personally. The philosophy and mission, the foundations for all that goes on at The Gregory School, give insight to why The Gregory School experience is unparalleled in Tucson.
We set the bar high for our faculty
The faculty is the cornerstone of any school. At The Gregory School, we are proud of the proven experience and academic credentials of our teachers, most of whom hold advanced degrees in the fields in which they teach. There is another essential quality we seek when hiring, however. Because our teachers work closely with students inside the classroom and with athletics and other extracurricular activities, our faculty also must have a genuine interest in young people and a strong commitment to helping them succeed in school and in life.
Our teacher-to-student ratio of 1:9 assures that students know their teachers personally and have ready access to them both for individual help and for enrichment opportunities.
We value a sense of community and benefit from the diversity of that community
At The Gregory School, we strive to make sure that students, parents and faculty know one another, support each other in their successes, and work together to create a nurturing, supportive community. The diversity of our students, who come from a variety of ethnic, socioeconomic, religious and educational backgrounds, enriches the educational opportunities for all of our students and is critical to the health of The Gregory School.
