George School was a great place for me. I was there for grades 9-12 and would do it all over. There were some great teachers, coaches and a diverse campus community of students who wanted to learn. Notably, many of the teachers graduated from George School and have taught there for decades. The classes

The school is updating its facilities with an all-weather track/turf field, renovated dinning facilities and an athletics field house on the south end of campus. These improvements are slightly overdue, but essential to the longevity of this very special place. The student life, especially activities for boarders, has been improving too, but was lacking when I was a student. Keep in mind, no place is perfect. So, go check this warm and welcoming community out for yourself, you won't be sorry. Read less

I had a great experience at George school. I graduated in 2012 and as a freshman in college now, I miss it incredibly but feel like it prepared me extremely well for college. I wouldn't have wanted to experience high school anywhere else.

George School is an incredible school for those looking to challenge themselves. However, like almost every other school, you get what you put into it. You can choose the difficulty of your classes, and it's tempting to opt for the easy classes and slide by. But if you really want to get the "bang for

I transfered to George School as a sophomore from my public school, it changed my life. You are treated as an individual, not just a number. The teacher relationships is truly remarkable considering many of them live with you in the dorms. I was a student who got good grades before coming to GS, but

I personally like it here. The community is welcoming and friendly, moreso than most other high schools. The academics are challenging if you would like them to be.

Our son approached us at the end of his 9th year in our local public school and asked if he could 'check out' George School. He went through the admission process and was awarded a very generous scholarship which covered more than half of his tuition. What a wonderful community! Not only was our son

Our son thrived at the school taking on leadership roles, getting involved in community service, and running some student clubs. The academics were challenging, but the class sizes were small and the teachers really cared. It was tough paying the tuition (even 50%) but it was worth every cent. He is attending college now and has carried over much of what he began at the George School. A strong, giving, confident, compassionate, and happy young man. Read less

Everyone rates this school ridiculously high, and those who have heard of the school but haven't actually gone there assume everyone is super smart. The truth is: George School really isn't anything special. The only thing about this school that exceeds those of other schools is its price. As a graduate

However, if you have any interest in being prepared for the real world where everyone isn't liberal and accepting, take this school off your list. It's a beautiful campus, and the academics are pretty good; but in terms of builiding a strong, practical young adult, this school can't do much for you. Read less
