CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Girls Preparatory School Girls Preparatory School (GPS) is one of the largest secondary girls' day schools in the United States, enrolling nearly 600 college-bound students in grades 6–12.

The roster of GPS graduates who have gone on to make a difference in the world includes women in every field and every walk of life.
