St. George's School review by .

The class sizes were about 10 a class and the teachers were very helpful in meeting with me outside of class. I spent time on both ends of the spectrum. When I was not doing well, the teachers were there to help me catch back up and when I was succeeding, the teachers made sure I really learned the material, rather than just studying for a grade.

Ask questions and be interested. Also, tip for the parents: the kids speak on the tour. Do not ask their questions for them...
  • Most younger siblings have an easy time in the admissions process. I can only think of one case of a younger sibling not being admitted. About half of the students who entered with me had come from public schools. The remainder came from private K-6 schools, or had transferred from other New York private schools The Elizabeth Morrow School and St. Bernard were two of the larger feeder schools...

School Life
