Who Are we?
Friends of Gables High is a not-for-profit volunteer board of Gables alumni and community leaders that care deeply for Gables High, its students, and our community. Friends primary goal is to help students excel in academics, athletics, and the arts in a state-of-the-art facility that will benefit the students and the Coral Gables community.
Friends of Gables is actively working on restoring Gables’ historic status as a top-rated school. At one point, Gables was amongst the top ten public schools in the nation, yet with the emergence of more public, private, and charter high schools, maintaining this title has proven difficult. Nonetheless, the academics at Gables remain strong, if not stronger than when its doors opened in 1950. Friends of Gables High will endeavor to have the school be nationally recognized for its academic programs.
At Friends of Gables High, our commitment runs deep. We actively advocate for the school’s growth by seeking additional funding where it’s essential, including projects like the new band building. Moreover, we raise our voices on educational matters, while proudly highlighting the remarkable qualities that define Gables High. Through these actions, we endeavor to reshape any negative perceptions and present Gables High authentically and positively.
Friends of Gables High is dedicated to fostering meaningful connections among alumni, the community, and the school through regular gatherings and events. Our commitment includes maintaining an informative website that offers current updates about both the school and alumni engagements. Additionally, we are excited to keep our valued members engaged by sending out a newsletter on a quarterly basis.
