Gulf Stream School
When selecting a new home and community, one of the key factors for families is the quality of the educational available to their children.

Gulf Stream School requires its students to participate in every aspect of school life, encouraging them to learn more about themselves and others while preparing them for purposeful involvement in the local and global communities.
One measure of the success of the Gulf Stream School program is reflected in the acceptance of their graduates to dozens of prestigious schools around the nation including: Asheville School – NC, Dreyfoos School for the Arts and The Benjamin School – FL, Deerfield Academy – CT, Georgetown Preparatory School – DC, and the International School of Genoa, Italy to name just a few.
In addition to the school’s academic successes, approximately 60% of Gulf Stream’s 7th grade class is invited to participate in the Duke University Talent Search.
