Tuition-Free Public Middle School

About Us

Welcome Message from Our Head of School

I would like to welcome you to GALS Las Vegas, a safe and supportive environment just for girls. I have over 30 years of teaching and school leadership experience including several years as the Principal of Petersen Elementary School, one of our neighborhood schools.

I chose to come to GALS because I loved my work at Petersen and I am excited to continue to partner with families to raise strong girls who can serve as future leaders in our community.

At GALS we specialize in the needs of adolescent middle school girls going through a very important growth period in their lives. Our program is comprehensive, fostering academic excellence, and emotional and physical well-being for our girls.  GALS is a special place where sisterhood is nurtured and understanding of one’s self and what is important to each of us is enlightened.

I am excited that our class sizes will be small, allowing our teachers to get know your daughters well, and help successfully guide them through middle school so that they will be well prepared for high school, college and beyond. We form Wellness Teams™ and your daughter will be assigned a Coach™ who will serve as their primary adviser through the school year.

Come be a part of our vision to create an equitable world where all people are treated with respect, direct their own lives and reach their full potential.

In Service, Krista Yarberry
