1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The George School campus is absolutely beautiful. My room senior year had a breathtaking view of a large lawn and trees. It’s a lovely campus to walk around in every season.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
The best part of George School was just about everything. I was not anxious to go away for high school. But our public school was very rural and most of my friends were not planning to go to college. It was not a diverse area and my parents wanted more for me. I tried it. It was an adjustment and within months I fell in love with it.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Give it time. It will be an adjustment. But I really don't remember anyone being unhappy there.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
Everything. Awesome teachers. Great friends. Incredible experience!
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
I loved living in the main building. It was very convenient and the views were beautiful.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Newtown is a lovely town to walk to. We would walk into town for pizza and ice cream.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
I liked hanging out on the front porch of the main building talking to friends . We also hung out on the expansive lawn a lot.

- Rutgers University One of the unique aspects of I loved about George school is its iconic "Red Square" located right outside of main building. This is the student hub during fall and springtime where you'll find many. . .
- The George Washington University While I never expected to attend a religious school, nor do I consider myself particularly religious, attending George School with its background in Quakerism was such an amazing experience. Teachers really seem to relate to. . .

Learning about a school from its website and social media pages is useful as you decide which school to choose. So is hearing what the school's alumni say about their alma mater.
The typical three-month-long summer break gives juniors and seniors a great opportunity to explore a variety of situations and options.
