The Girls' Middle School

3400 W Bayshore Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94303

Founded to provide local girls with a single-gender learning environment during their middle school years, GMS emphasizes problem solving and self-directed study through project-based, hands-on and multidisciplinary projects that combine group work with individual research. A study skills class designed to teach time management, organizational and goal-setting skills meets weekly. The school's entrepreneurial studies program allows seventh graders to create and run their own businesses, from formulating a business plan through marketing a product. Each year, GMS' weeklong intersession enables girls to take half- or full-day courses in areas not covered in the regular curriculum.
