2017 GSMS Handbook and Forms

The following handbooks are for  students who will attend a session of the Governor's School for Math and Science and their  parents. The handbooks contain information about the campus where they will be studying, packing suggestions, and the rules and expectations for all students. 

Since there are two separate  schools, one for rising eighth graders and one for rising ninth graders, there are two separate sets of handbooks and forms.  Forms will be published by the end of the day May 20.

Rising 9th Graders at West Virginia State University

The forms for rising ninth graders were a little late being published.  Do not despair!  Because they are late, there is also an extension on the deadline.  Your forms will not have to be submitted until Monday, June 12, but we would much appreciate your completing them by June 5.
