GUTS

(Gentlemen and Upstanders Think of otherS)
GUTS is a program that focuses on building our boys’ character in a consistent and positive way. The Middle School faculty collectively stands behind and implements this program. GUTS focuses on some very basic tenets of what we believe in at Allen-Stevenson. It is a program that encourages all boys to develop habits of good citizenship. There is a strong belief that if boys have a purposeful task that can be accomplished together, a community will be built and collective self-esteem will emerge from the boys. GUTS focuses on encouraging boys to be kind to each other, do their best work and understand the basic rules of Allen-Stevenson.


Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
