Hello GSMST Community!
The 2016-17 school year has gotten off to a great start. During the first week of school, we recognized our 63 National AP Scholars from 2016. During the third week of school, ACT results were released and GSMST leads all Georgia schools with an average score of 28.7. This week, we were notified that we have 16 seniors who have qualified as National Merit Semi-Finalists. These achievement results, and many others, confirm how hard our students and teachers continue to work each day.
The GSMST Class of 2016 included 195 graduates and we hope the Class of 2017 is our largest class of graduates ever. We currently have 201 seniors in our student body of 1001 students.
GSMST continues to serve as a lab school for instructional innovation across all of GCPS as we support students in our high performance STEM culture. Our 1 to 1 laptop initiative, blended and hybrid class instruction, and a marquee internship program are just some of the creative, innovative, and transformational opportunities that make up the GSMST experience.
We welcome and look forward to seeing all families on Thursday night (9/1) for Open House where parents will get a chance to follow their child’s schedule and meet each teacher along the way. Open House begins at 7:00 p.m. Printed copies of student schedules will be available in the lower level atrium beginning at 6:00 p.m.
