STEPHEN GAYNOR SCHOOL

Students Find Personal Connections with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Students across the school learned about the power of dreams and their ability to effect change this week in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. They learned about Dr. King’s desire to spread love and kindness to combat hate, and found personal connections to his words. 

With Charters, Students Create a Positive Classroom Environment

Gaynor has been incorporating charters for the past two years, not only in the classroom, but also with faculty and staff. Through classroom charters, students work together to create common goals and hold each other accountable for creating a positive classroom environment.

Inspiration and Collaboration: The Senior Educator Program

The teachers and specialists at Stephen Gaynor School are exemplary special educators. How do we establish a community of veteran educators dedicated to continuing at the highest level in their field who are also explicitly trained to mentor faculty members new to Gaynor? Assistant Head of School Jill Thompson describes the inspiration behind, and elements of, the Senior Educator Program.
