Come Shadow at FGR!

We invite all 7th and 8th graders to come visit and experience a day in the life of an FGR student. First Semester (October through December) is reserved for 8th grade shadows only. Second Semester (January through April) is open for either 7th or 8th grade shadows. Visiting students will be paired with one of our trained Student Ambassadors who shares similar interests. This is a great way to become familiar with the school, meet students and teachers, and discover the exciting things taking place at FGR!
