The Right Fit for Many Reasons
T
his year, GMS saw a 30 percent increase in applications
and more than 90 percent of
the girls who spent a day shadowing at
the school submitted an application for
enrollment, reflecting the great experiences girls have with students and
teachers on campus.
Caroline Mameesh with parents Nyle and
Elizabeth
“I used to teach Spanish in middle
school, and part of my training was to
observe teachers in the classroom,” says
Elizabeth Paoletti of San Mateo, whose
daughter, Caroline, is starting at GMS
this fall. “I had always heard about gender inequality, that boys were called on
more in the classroom. Well, I saw it in
action, so I knew I wanted my daughter to attend an all-girls school. But
that was just a part of the equation.”
Elizabeth was impressed with GMS’
non-traditional curriculum, and liked
the idea that Caroline would have a
chance to take apart a computer and
explore her burgeoning interest in
math. “Academically, I think GMS has
the highest standards or we would not
have considered it,” she says. “But I
think GMS will help her to feel more
empowered to believe she can do anything she wants.”
Lily Ying of San Mateo was looking for
an environment in which her daughter,
Samantha, could try new experiences
and develop more confidence. “There’s
such an interesting balance between
traditional academics and different
things for her to try, like rock-climbing
and skateboarding. I love the fact
that the girls are encouraged to think
outside the lines, that it’s OK to try all
sorts of things.”
For Cindy Howard of Palo Alto, GMS
is a place where teachers treat their students as unique individuals. “It always
Samantha Ho with parents Richard and Lily, and
older brother Christopher
Gwen Howard with mother Cindy, and older
sister/GMS alumna Laurel
strikes me how the adults and children
interact. There are always exciting,
engaging conversations taking place,
and the teachers are always there for
them when they need more guidance
or attention,” says Cindy, whose third
daughter, Gwen, is attending GMS this
fall. “They get that how a girl learns is
just as important as what she learns.”
All three of these families have different
reasons for choosing GMS, which is
not only something we celebrate – it’s
something we’ve come to expect. It
is the collection of those reasons that
make GMS a place where girls can
grow, learn, be themselves, and thrive.
“I want my daughter to grow up to be
a well-rounded person – academically,
socially, and emotionally – and I think
GMS provides the kind of environment
that will help her do just that,” said Lily.

here is nothing more important
to a school’s success than the
quality and commitment of its
teachers. The entire GMS community
wishes to thank Andi Barlas, Renee
Fadiman, Michelle Hutton, Esther Selk,
Laura Reeve and Holly Zuklie for their
ten years (or a little more for some!) of
dedication to GMS girls.
“Michelle is a very important
Through their remarkable efforts,
these women have touched the lives
of hundreds of students, undoubtedly
inspiring each to achieve her greatest
potential. To illustrate the kind of difference they’ve made, we went straight
to the source: their students.
proactive, and she always responded
appropriately based on the needs
I expressed… Her passion for
engineering and science led me in my
own pursuit of engineering “
“There have been many inspiring
and supportive women in my life, and
has been one of them who I
will never forget. She was more than
just my advisor; she took her role
beyond just a job and became a great
friend who provided me with her full
support.”

Our New Dean Duo
Two familiar GMS faces
stepped into new roles this year.
Laura Reeve, who is a founding
faculty member, became our
new Academic Dean, overseeing
curriculum and faculty development as GMS moves into its
second decade of instruction.
Marjorie Lucks, longtime science and math teacher, is now
Dean of Students, overseeing
all student activities and special
programs. We are thrilled to
have two seasoned GMS faculty
members fill such important
roles in our administration.
Esther
“GMS is lucky to have
because she teaches math with such
enthusiasm and energy that you can’t
help but learn something … you can
tell that she truly appreciates you for
who you are.”
– Gina Chang, Menlo School
“Andi is one of the kindest souled
people I have ever met. She helped me
through some tough times, and I know
that even now, after I’ve graduated,
she’ll still be there for me anytime I
need her.”
– Sarah Rabin, Los Altos High School
“Renee taught me that art is what
you put your heart into, not just flashy
paint strokes on paper. Renee’s
been a great influence on me,
and inspired me to go beyond
in my art.”

High School

ERIN PIPER, GMS CLASS OF 2005
T
“
he endorsements we
receive
from our alums are
the ones that mean
the most to us; it’s
gratifying to know
that they carry
their GMS experiences with them.
So we were thrilled
to learn what came to Erin Piper’s mind when she was asked
to answer the following college application essay prompt:
“Describe the world you come from – for example, your family, community or school – and tell us how your world has
shaped your dreams and aspirations.” We are proud to share
this excerpt from her response:
Though many people and experiences influenced me over the
years, the two most significant influences were my family and my
middle school. My parents raised me to believe that every person
shares a responsibility to engage in philanthropy, to participate
in the political process, and to contribute to our local and global
community. With this life philosophy, my parents chose the Girls’
Middle School… for the very impressionable years when we
grow and discover who we are as young adults. My dreams and
aspirations were nurtured, my passions were encouraged, and my
failures were never stressed but viewed as learning experiences.
…We focused on inner strength, self-initiative, community and
diversity. Looking back, I know that the life-long friends I made
and the teachers I came to admire played a significant role in
helping me to envision my educational goal to become an international civil rights attorney.
”
When we asked Erin what made her take this direction with
her essay, she talked about how her years at GMS brought
her in close contact with people from all backgrounds, which
helped to cement her commitment to social change. Erin
starts her first year in the Arts and Humanities Program at
Santa Clara University this September.
Q & A WITH ERIN
How did GMS prepare you for high school and
college?
Socially and emotionally, I felt I was more
mature than a lot of my high school classmates.
Some friends from GMS were also at my high
school, and we helped each other a lot, especially getting used to being in co-ed classes.
Academically, I was all set to do my best in
school. I was ready for a big high school.
What class or activity made the biggest
impression on you?
My humanities classes and teachers. I wasn’t
that big on math and science but I did love to
write. Humanities taught me to think analytically and to communicate more clearly. These
classes challenged me, and there was a great
reward in that.
Did GMS influence your plans for the future?
GMS is small and centered around community, so there is a feeling that every person’s
participation is important. It made me feel like
I could make a difference. I’m interested in
international law and am taking classes in social
justice. I want to help work on social problems
in the U.S. I want to be a war crimes warrior.
What advice do you have for today’s GMS girls?
Be involved in your classes and take part in everything. Talk to your teachers and get to know
them – they are incredible and will always be
there to help you succeed.
A Milestone
Celebration
The turnout for our 10th anniversary event
in April was fantastic. It was wonderful to
share the milestone with so many friends
of GMS. We send our sincere thanks to
everyone who joined in the celebration.

Share your Passion! VOLUNTEER TEACHERS NEEDED FOR GMS INTERSESSION
I
f you aren’t afraid to face smart, lively and eager learners, consider teaching an
intersession course at GMS. For one week in the fall and one week in the spring,
we suspend usual classes to offer small group short courses; past classes have run the
gamut of subjects, including creative writing, composting, aviation, mountain biking,
folklore of India, and catapult design. The only limits are your imagination and energy.
We’re looking for volunteer teachers for fall intersession, which will take place November 2-6. Teachers can commit to offer a half-day (morning or afternoon) course or a
full-day course. If you have a passion for a subject that you’d like to share with our girls,
contact Melissa Johns at 650-968-8338, extension 107. The more excited teachers we
have, the better our students’ experiences will be!
