We have a rising 8th grader with ADHD. The teachers and staff work with parents to make sure every student has the opportunity to succeed. I firmly believe (and there are scientific studies that back up) that exercise is truly the best medicine for ADHD. Githens not only has required P.E.
I have had two children attend Githens. Both students enjoyed going to school each day (as much as middle schoolers do), felt safe and most definitely felt a part of a vibrant community. The student population at Githens is very diverse, both culturally, economically and academically.
We have had a great experience at Githens. We have a rising 7th and 8th grader. We are very fortunate to have a amazing principle as well as awesome teachers that support our students needs.

My daughter is a rising 8th grader at Githens. We have been very pleased with our experience at GMS. It's a large school with a close-knit community feel to it. The principal, Tonya Williams, does an exceptional job setting high standards for the students and staff.
Principal Tonya Williams is an amazing administrator who motivates her staff to expect the best from themselves and the students they teach. She addresses problems quickly and effectively. She is also fun, approachable and liked by the staff and students.
