History of Golden Values School
The Golden Values School story began in 1979 when Mr. Bob Garon learned that his wife Emmy was pregnant with their first born, Vanessa. They of course were very happy. Like all parents, they began to plan for their child.
They decided it was vital for Vanessa to get an early start in school. However, they not only wanted her to learn the ABC's quickly and early, but they also were concerned about her values formation. Because of their vast experience in counseling and rehabilitation of drug dependents and troubled adolescents, they were convinced that the early years are key in molding character and personality.
They began searching for a preschool that would respond to their concerns. To make a long story short, they decided to put up their own school in order to incorporate their own ideas into the curriculum. From the very beginning, they had no intention of expanding into many schools or plan to add a grade school or high school. However, the little preschool eventually became many and what was known to just be a preschool has now a growing Grade school and High school population.Today Golden Values School has become known for its quality education with a special emphasis on character and personality development. Most parents enroll their children in GVS because of the small classes, the very personalized attention each child gets and the high academic and values standards of the school.
What is as important in the formation of success in life is CHARACTER or the emotional quotient. An intelligent child who lacks character and values will not make it to the top in life. We all know this from observation and experience. In Mr. Garon's many years as a counselor and consultant to hundreds of corporations, he has seen that the children who can develop proper attitudes and values, who can acquire the right study habits are the ones who later on in life become successful.
The challenge for the parents lies in providing the right kind of environment for all these to happen. It starts in the home but does not end there. Children need to be exposed to the world. GVS serves as a bridge between the home and the world. It is a gradual friendly introduction to the world where your child will learn to interact and live together while they acquire solid attitudes and values as a strong foundation.
