Our thousands of graduates can attest to the quality of St. Gabrielâ€™s academic programme, but that is only one aspect of the education a student receives. Through interactions with members of the entire St. Gabrielâ€™s community, and with strong parent-teacher relations that are fostered through frequent communication and parental involvement, students mature into young people who not only have stretched their minds, but have grown personally, artistically, and athletically.
What sets St. Gabrielâ€™s apart? A Tradition of Excellence
St. Gabriel's School provides a well-rounded quality education, within a Christian framework, for a highly diverse student body.
Families new to St. Gabriel's sometimes ask what their children may need to do to 'fit in'. The answer is simple: simply be themselves. St. Gabriel's is a community that has long embraced students and faculty of many backgrounds, cultures, races, and beliefs. What binds everyone together is not just the shared commitment to learning but the supportive atmosphere in the community. There is pride in the fact that there is no "typical" St. Gabrielâ€™s student, no cultural mold to fit.
We pride ourselves in discovering and developing the talents of each pupil. The curriculum follows the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Education, and a multimedia approach is adopted to promote cognitive, creative, aesthetic, practical, physical, social and spiritual development. A wide range of ability levels are catered for, including specific learning disabilities and moderate global disability. Our graduating class is consistently among the top achievers in the Barbados Secondary Schoolsâ€™ Entrance Examination.
In keeping with our philosophy, â€śEducation for Lifeâ€ť, particular attention is given to the provision of a stimulating and nurturing environment where the opportunity for learning, recreation and socialisation are varied and plentiful. We use a range of tools and resources to engage our students, to get them thinking critically, and to turn them into life-long learners. In addition, the high quality of our athletics programme is recognized nationwide.
