GS offers solid academic, arts, and athletic programs within a diverse, holistic, community. Students vary in their pursuit of excellence. Some are highly motivated, others go through the motions. Teachers care about the students, supporting them inside & outside the classroom. The campus is stunning. Facilities range from superior (library, athletic center), to adequate (science labs, classrooms, freshman dorms), to less than adequate (sophomore and upper class dorms). The food, while plentiful, is adequate. And, while free speech is encouraged, those with conservative views don't share for fear of backlash from the unabashedly progressive, liberal, and socialist leaning majority. Admissions and College Counseling has improved, and the new HOS is a welcome addition. In sum, George School is fine school not sought after by top boarding applicants, which is a shame given all it has to offer.
