Very Good 6 Average 0 Poor 1Terrible 2 All Categories the Girls Athletic Leadership School is an amazing place! Middle school is such a pivot point for girls, and GALS provides their students with everything they need to succeed, to build solid friendship, and to value their individuality. The academics are rigorous, but the GALS series is the secret sauce. It's a three-year course designed to make students more aware of their individual and community identity, the skills to navigate through challenges and decisions successfully, and empowerment to drive them. Choosing GALS for our daughter was one of the best decisions we've ever made!
