RPEMS Gay-Straight Alliance Wins
The Roland Park Elementary/Middle School Gay-Straight Alliance, or GSA, was started to ensure that every student of Roland Park has the best school experience possible. Its mission is to provide a safe and inclusive space for all genders and sexual orientations. The group recently won the national “GSA of the Year” award from (glisten) GLSEN, a national education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ students. We talk to several students from the GSA and their advisor, Kimberly Mooney about how the GSA has positively impacted the school's atmosphere.
