Garrison Forest School Renovations

Garrison Forest School (GFS) received a $5 million gift to support several ongoing and future projects, including a full renovation of the main Upper School building and the construction of a new dormitory, both of which are slated for completion this summer. Gifted by an anonymous alumna donor, the donation represents the largest single philanthropic gift in the independent school’s 109-year history.
