About GEMS

GEMS is a non-profit charter school in Columbus, OH. As a charter school, we are a public school that reports directly to the Ohio Department of Education.


Our Mission


As a member of The Graham Family of Schools, the Graham Expeditionary Middle School (GEMS) prepares students for academic success, self direction, life long learning, and commitment to community by providing intentional learning experiences that foster imagination, discovery, problem solving skills, and growing independence. With a particular mission to serve urban students, GEMS will be a supportive community where students learn to care for themselves, each other and the natural world. As a school that values generosity, stewardship, and service, GEMS will nurture not only students’ academic growth and confidence but also their development as compassionate citizens of a global world.
