Sidwell Friends School Reviews

24 reviews
All Categories
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.
I went in with extremely high expectations but was misled by the thrill of going to "the school to be at". For some of my friends Sidwell was a great choice because it is a good school, just make sure you know if it's right for you or not because if its not the right environment you have a tough year ahead.
