"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!
The annual 8th grade trip to our nation’s capital is a cherished tradition that many alumni consider their favorite St. George’s memory. As the week approached when we would have normally made the trip, our community sensed anew the loss of this tradition. So, as with most things in life this year, we had to become flexible adapters with regards to our DC trip. Putting our heads together we thought, “Let’s bring DC to StG.” And thus “#DCtoStG” was born.
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.
