Head Teacher’s Philosophy

George School prioritizes reflection and self-awareness in ways that build resilience, character, empathy and courage. When these qualities are married to academic rigor, the application of creativity across all disciplines, and a community unparalleled in its diversity and kindness, you have the hallmarks of a George School education.

Outstanding Characteristics

George School exists to support the growth of people who can make the world as it ought to be, rather than settling for the world as it is. Our students are sought after by selective colleges and universities in the United States and around the world.
