A Great School Needs A Great Faculty
 
We're fortunate to have an outstanding faculty, 88% of whom have advanced degrees. With a 5:1 student-to-faculty ratio, our faculty are so much more than teachers—they are student advisors, mentors, coaches, club leaders and friends. They challenge, cajole, coax and inspire their students toward excellence.

Our small classes allow faculty to know the students they teach. They notice when their students need extra challenge and extra help.

Gann teachers are brilliant, funny, and passionate about what they do.
