Gilkey finds a balance between its various programs. GIS students are actively involved in the admissions process by getting teacher recommendations, shadowing at Gilkey, and attending open house events.
Gilkey International Middle School fosters a spirit of community in which diversity is a key component, reflected in the organization of their language “tracks.” Students with high-level second-language skills enter their German immersion track. The Advanced German Track at Gilkey was designed in partnership with the German International School to provide a continuation for GIS students. All students learn a new language in addition to German, which they will pursue for three years or until the end of eighth grade. Both beginning and advanced language classes are taught exclusively by native speakers of the language. Units of work in all subjects are developed around guiding questions and lines of inquiry that help students connect their learning to the world they live in. Through classwork, projects, group work, and electives, students are given many opportunities to develop their leadership and creativity, to take intellectual risks, and to communicate and reflect.
Students who do not enter the German language track at the Gilkey Middle School can continue their German language acquisition here at GIS with weekly evening classes
