It was one year ago, when our lives were abruptly disrupted and turned upside down.
Our community is full of people just like you—parents who hold unwavering belief in their child's opportunity to repair the world.
We cultivate a community that is diverse, dynamic, and multifaceted. It includes students and faculty, our McGillis families and partners, and all who we impact. Our Kehilah is tended, cultivated, and constructed. We will remain rooted in Jewish values and traditions, and yet, we are continually open to change that builds on our solid academic and ethical foundation. We believe that a diverse and inclusive community is essential to a rich educational experience that prepares our students to interact in an increasingly interconnected world.
“Please” and “thank you” are magic words that help people feel good. Expressing gratitude and giving thanks are basic principles of kindness and generosity.
Returning each year to our School’s values in developmentally appropriate ways, our students are developing both the muscle memory and the knowledge of how to live lives filled with empathy, giving to those in need, and a commitment to the well-being of all.
In recognizing that each individual family bears the primary responsibility for financing a student’s education cost, The McGillis School maintains a commitment to building a diverse and inclusive community.
Gather with your family of witches, mummies, goblins and ghosts, to show off your best carving skills. Organize a Spooky-Zoom with friends for a virtual carving party and costume parade.
