*GISB strives to encourage independence, self-discovery, and time for reflection for our students. Recent documentaries such as Race to Nowhere point to a trend of overscheduled and stressed youth that we keep in mind in the design of our extracurricular offerings. The After School Program at GISB provides an increasing number of student-led clubs for Middle and Upper School students such as a soccer league, acapella group, and peer-tutoring club. Many students engage in artistic, athletic, and intellectual endeavours in addition to what the school currently provides, and we celebrate that. We also engage with families and students in thoughtful conversations about un-scheduling.
