Principal's Message

Message from Mrs. Gilman

I am so thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal of Garvanza Elementary, soon to be Garvanza Technology and Leadership Magnet!  This school has such a rich history of serving the community of Highland Park, which will only be strengthened as we begin our transition to the magnet this year.  My background is in instructional technology, academic rigor, and strategic intervention.  I am driven by the belief that all students can and should be successful. That means our 21st Century learners must be creative, innovative, critical thinkers, who are empowered to design and follow their own individual learning path.  the vision of Garvanza is centered around equipping our students with the skills and character qualities that will make them life-long leaders.  I look forward to our collaborative work together!
