Feeling The Gann Spirit

They sing. They dance. They play the banjo. They build go carts. And between math homework and getting to the bus on time, everyone has fun.
 
Students are at the heart of Gann’s unique and warm atmosphere—students doing, talking, learning and saying yes. Yes, to trying out for a team. Yes, to organizing a slam poetry festival. Yes, to helping a new student with homework. And yes, most importantly, to stepping up and taking the reins.

Gann boasts dozens of clubs, including Model UN, Femininjas, Gay-Straight Alliance, Math Club, Mock Trial, Environment Club, Interfaith Club, Tikkun Olam Union, and the Shevuon Hatichon student newspaper. Students are motivated and encouraged to create new clubs and interests groups that match their passions.
