Founded in 1965 by Phillip John Gilroy III, the Academy originally was a gentleman's club of sorts, where scholars met to converse about the latest going-ons. It wasn't until Phillip John Gilroy III's son, P.J Gilroy IV was given control of the Academy in 1986 that it became a true school for higher learning. For several years it was an all boys' school, but that changed in 1997 when P.J. Gilroy IV had his daughter enroll. Now, two in every seven boys is a girl.
Gilroy Academy (or, P.J. Gilroy, for people still for the school's old name) is located in Smallstown, New Jersey. It's a private school, and as such, is hard to get into. The Academy does live up to its high marks, usually producing bland Einstein after Einstein. The school caters best to Highschool students looking to get into mathematics, history, and science, even though it offers courses for the other subjects, aswell.
The school has strict uniforms, and kids who do not follow them get an ISS for failure of following school conduct. Boys must wear white oxford shirts (the tie is optional), black dress pants, and Gilroy's official sweater vest with the founder's (Phillip John's) initials badge sewn into the top. The girl's uniform is relatively the same, aside from the pants being pleated skirts. They can wear whatever kind of shoes they want to wear, although sandals, flip-flops, and the like are frowned upon.
CLASSES TAKEN -
Mrs. Garrick's Homeroom 239. Grade 9th.
Mr. Hallam's Homeroom 232. Grade 9th.
Mrs. Garrick teaches Math. Mr. Hallam teaches Science. Mr. H. is a funny man with a funny smile to match. Mrs. Garrick is the direct opposite, but she's into stupid trips and fundraisers that supposedly "help out the school and students".
These classes are going to be going to the museum by bus!
