General Myer is a proud member of the Fort Huachuca Army Community in Arizona. Not only do we focus on academics, but we also focus on addressing the unique needs of our students and military community. Students and families are always listened to and supported in any way needed. Student success is attributed not only to providing whole child education but also the data based decision-making model that is employed. Students that need additional and enriched instructional support are identified using various data points. The data provides information for individualized targeted instruction. Decisions are consistently made to tailor instruction.

The supportive community is also essential to our success. Active partnerships with Army units, families, site council and PTO provide various volunteer experiences. This support allows for many special events to be held during the school year. Without the support of our community, we would not be able to provide many unique learning opportunities. We tirelessly support unique challenges of school families by uplifting students as they navigate deployments of family members, attend multiple schools in their short school careers, make new friends without the comfort of a familiar face, and ensure academic success. Military service members know their children are in great hands at GMES. By providing a supportive school culture and a focus on educating the whole child, families can focus on their military mission. GMES is proud to play this preeminent role by enthusiastically supporting the military community. Students know they are always cared for, believed in, and safe on our campus!
