    Both my children have gone to GDA since they were 15 years old. GDA is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you GDA for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! '
