** The NM PreK program is tuition free, and there is no registration fee. The program is between 8:30am-3:30pm while school is in session. Extra charges apply for Before and After School care, as well as enrichment programming outside of the regular school calendar.


 All GMS families are expected to do 40 volunteer hours for the school each year.* There are many ways to meet these requirements; helping in the garden, doing laundry, making classroom materials, working on the buildings, and spending time on the playground with the children are just some of the options! This work not only helps to reduce operation costs and keep tuition down, it's a great way for parents to get involved and know more about the school! The SOS Family Volunteer Form helps us know what skills you have to share, and the Office Manager and School Director are happy to give you more information about these hours!

* PreK families are exempt from this requirement, but are still strongly encouraged to help the school when and if they can!
