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
Sidwell Friends School is an excellent place to go no matter what kind of student you are. Whether your interested in STEM, Theater, Sports, Humanities, or Computer Science, there is a niche of people ready to help you on your way. They provide a space for you to foster your passion and you can always find faculty or administration willing to delve into your passion. Sidwell especially in middle school has a lot of resources that are available to use. In Upper School they are still there but you have to be willing to dig deeper to find these amazing opportunities.
I arrived at Sidwell Friends in third grade. It was terrifying, obviously, since I was changing schools and all. But I'm glad I did. My parents had decided that Sidwell had much better education available, and they were right. At first I struggled; I wasn't used to competitiveness. Eventually, I caught on, and as a sophomore today I can definitively say I'm doing far better. My grades aren't spectacular, but I feel like I've learned a lot. I've experienced so much joy and wonder at Sidwell, and while I may not have seen it all at this school, I certainly feel as though I've seen quite a bit.
