The Gunston School is a private school located in Centreville, Maryland, founded in 1911 by Sam and Mary Middleton.


Because Gunston is such a small school and has an average student/teacher ratio of 6,[1] class sizes tend to be quite small. On average, Freshman classes have about 40 members, while the average grauduating class averages around 42 students per year.
The school took part in the GLOBE Program by collecting environmental data from April 1995 onwards.[2] As of August 16, 2011, Gunston Day School was formally reincorporated as The Gunston School.



The sailing team competes in regatta's against teams in MDISA league of the MASSA conference through ISSA. The Varsity team is coached by Mr. Clarke, and the Junior Varsity team is coached by history teacher, Mr. Granger.


The Gunston rowers compete in regattas against many other private schools in the state and is coached by Mrs. Stimpson.
