A Gordon education spans the most crucial years in a child’s development, from Nursery through eighth grade. By the time they begin high school, a Gordon graduate is an intellectual leader and a joyful learner, with an empathetic spirit and a drive to make a positive societal impact.
Gordon has a rigorous multicultural curriculum spanning all disciplines. The curriculum emphasizes real world applications of academic skills and challenges students to appreciate the value of multiple perspectives. This learning takes place among a diverse population of students and teachers who reflect the many cultures within the Rhode Island community and beyond.
Gordon is committed to connecting academic learning with the world beyond the classroom. Students engage daily in hands-on projects at school. Field trips include experiences such as the eighth grade Civil Rights Trip
, studying habitats at the Caratunk wildlife refuge, and boat trips to study marine life on Naragansett Bay.
