We encourage carpooling at GAIS to reduce car trips to school, relieve pressure on our limited parking, and help the environment.
To find a family to carpool with before the directory is available, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These carpooling stories will make you want to join a carpool even if you bike to school!
What is a carpool?
A carpool is any arrangement that eliminates another car trip to school. (It is not two or three children from the same family riding together.)

Cars should not parked outside of the GAIS parking lot at the end of Elm Street. Please do not park on the neighboring streets. Please drive slowly in the neighborhood.
