I had a wonderful experience at Sidwell. I was surrounded by peers of all sorts of backgrounds- economical, racial, sexual orientation, and religion! There I was able to understand who I wanted to be and what I wanted to represent. The school was also extremely supportive of everything and anything students did with criticisms on the school and society as a whole. I really do appreciate everything the school has done and given me.
Review Sidwell Friends School
Although Sidwell is extremely academically challenging, Sidwell has truly made me interested numerous subjects. Sidwell's teachers not only provide constant support, but they also stay in touch with students after graduation. Sidwell's numerous clubs are spread subjects, such as newspaper, satirical newspaper, Latin American Society, Best Buddies, Eco club, Women in Engineering, Female Empowerment club, Black Student Union, GLBTQ+, outing club, investment club, brain club, astronomy club, robotics, debate, Model UN, and so many more clubs.
Very warm and welcoming community. Very liberal, it could be pretty hard being a conservative at this school. Facilities are better than some college facilities (state of the art athletic center and arts building). Could use more socioeconomic diversity. Classes are definitely hard, and teachers expect a lot out of you. There are however plenty of resources available to students, and many opportunities that students at other schools may not have (i.e., a middle school spring break trip to the grand tetons or to China).
