Welcome to Gomes

“School is a place of encounter along our journey….At school we are ‘socialized’. We meet people who are different from us, different in age, culture, origin, and ability.” Families and schools should never be in opposition, but they must work together for the good of the child. In the end, I agree with the world leader I previously quoted because I want each student at Gomes to mature and graduate speaking “three languages: the language of the mind, the language of the heart and the language of the hands."
