School Reviews

St. George''s School creates an atmosphere that encourages and supports academic excellence, creative thinking, and service learning. All students have ample opportunities to participate in all activities. Faculty advisors and teachers are incredibly supporting. The facilities are beautiful and enhance learning and exploration. As a current and alumni parent, I most highly recommend this school for any motivated student.

St. George''s has been an excellent fit for our daughter. The curriculum is very integrated and requires in-depth input and participation from the students. The teachers'' enthusiasm and love of their work and students is obvious. The emphasis is not just in academics; it is in all aspects of creating a well-rounded and active member of their community. They don''t just teach citizenship, they DO it!
