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. 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!
