St. George's Parents Group President and Board of Trustees member Laura Wilt reflects on her childhood, during which she was frequently the "only minority in virtually every room" and speaks to the StG community's power to inspire lifelong learning for both students AND parents.
"The magic of this real-world simulation has been in the way we have seen students develop as critical thinkers in a collaborative environment. They have needed to build consensus in order to succeed. And every child is involved. Students who struggle with writing are eager to record their ideas. Students who have usually been quiet in social studies are now loud participants in the process. At varying points, each child gets to be a leader."
Chances are, if you passed by the Salem Theatre last Thursday or Friday, you would have had no inclination that magic was happening inside...but let us assure you that, indeed, there was. Bravo on spectacular production, cast and crew of The Phantom Tollbooth!
What Makes Us Unique?
We pride ourselves in being able to do “what is right and best for each individual child.” Through our low student-to-teacher ratio, qualified faculty and family-like atmosphere, students gain the confidence needed to achieve success in academics, social development and emotional well-being.
Where Are They Now?
St. George's Episcopal School serves students from age 1 through 8th grade. After graduating from St. George's, these talented individuals go on to the most prestigious high schools in the Greater New Orleans area. Last year, 100% of our 8th graders were accepted into their 1st choice high school.
