Welcome To Rebel Nation!
Below our Future Rebels and their families can get a glimpse into Leland and Gray Union Middle and High School.
Leland and Gray Union Middle and High School is located in the West River Valley at the corner of Routes 30 and 35 in the small rural town of Townshend, VT.
Townshend is situated in the southeastern corner of VT, approximately 20 miles northwest of Brattleboro. Townshend and the towns of Brookline, Jamaica, Newfane, and Windham comprise the union high school district.
As part of the Windham Central Supervisory Union, Leland and Gray serves students from the union towns of Newfane, Brookline, Jamaica, Townshend, and Windham. Approximately 20% of students attend Leland and Gray as part of school choice, either from other Vermont towns or from abroad with a J-1 or F-2 student visa.
Our Programs of Study
Middle and High School students have opportunities to participate in studies that encompass an aligned sequence of college-preparatory and Advanced Placement courses to all students, supported by academic support classes and extensive services. Small class sizes and strong ties between faculty and students foster achievement, creativity, and global citizenship. Extensive opportunities tied to academic programs enable Leland and Gray students to learn abroad and attract international students to our campus, most notably through the Chinese-American performing arts collaboration, Journey East.
Our comprehensive programs for grades 6-12 provide courses in all traditional subject areas as well as personalized options to fulfill the learning aspirations and needs of every student. Small class sizes and strong ties between faculty and students foster an environment of creativity, tolerance, and achievement. We have recently begun Project-Based learning days in the High School.
Our Co-Curricular Programs
Athletics – Soccer, Cross-Country, Basketball, Unified Basketball, Snowboarding, Baseball, Softball, Track & Field, and Ultimate Disc
Music – Pep Band, A Cappella, Jazz Band, & Marching Band
Theater – Three high quality shows yearly.
Winter Activities - We offer a variety of fun programs for our students to do in the winter months during our designated WInter Sport days.
Benefits of a Small School
There are fewer “cracks” to fall into with our ability to have both: student support services and home visits. Students have the possibility to experience all of our opportunities while they are at L&G; our music teachers, drama director, coaches, and administration work very well together to help students find a schedule that works for them learning is about relationships. Relationships are built on common understandings and trust. L&G is able to do things other, bigger schools cannot.
