Summer Bridge

A Transitional Program

GMS offers a Summer Bridge program for incoming freshmen to better prepare for them for their high school experience. Participants are introduced to our media magnet program, earn elective credits, take field trips, learn media and presentation skills, collaborate to create videos, films and multimedia projects, and get the inside scoop on what high school is really like. Students who attend Summer Bridge have higher attendance rates and overall grade point averages in their freshman year. Most importantly, students make new friends!

Developing Leadership Skills

Summer Bridge participants feel more comfortable and safe in the high school environment, and better understand the structure of high school. Participation can enhance students’ confidence, self-esteem, and motivation to learn.

In addition to meeting some of their teachers and their peers, Summer Bridge participants also are guided and mentored by students from the upper grades, and even recent graduates, of the GMS Magnet. Summer Bridge Leaders undergo leadership training and must apply to participate in Summer Bridge program. Often they are former Summer Bridge participants themselves. Summer Bridge Leaders help plan fun and educational activities that ensure our incoming freshmen feel very connected to our GMS family.
