About Our School
Dear Students, Parents and Staff:
I hope you have enjoyed your summer, and look forward to working with you all during the upcoming school year to provide continued learning opportunities (academic, social/emotional, and behavioral) for the students of The Geller House School.
As we begin the new school year at The Geller House School, we will be reinforcing "P.R.I.D.E in Education." Our acronym is meant to encourage positive behaviors associated with school success. The letters in P.R.I.D.E. stand for Positive, Respectful, Important, Dedicated (to) Excellence. Please continue to model, encourage, and reinforce school attendance and positive behavior so that all of our students will have an optimal learning environment and experience. With great effort from each of us, our students can and will exhibit P.R.I.D.E.!
Our goal within the Geller House School is to afford each student an education commensurate with his/her abilities, following the common core, and challenging to a degree that will prompt a love of learning. I look forward to collaborating with you, as we approach the 2015-2016 school year together.
Vikki Palmer, Ph.D.
Principal, Geller House School
