GMS offers a Summer Bridge program for incoming freshmen who would like to be better prepared for their high school experience. Participants earn elective credits, take field trips, learn media and presentation skills, 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!
Students 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
