St. Paul's School Reviews

I graduated from St. Paul's in 2017 and I wholeheartedly believe that SPS offers an experience unlike any other secondary school in the nation. I had friends from across the globe, my teachers were absolutely incredible (and some are like family to me), the facilities are unmatched, and the people there are just so intelligent and passionate about their own unique interests. I would be lying if I said that SPS is all sunshine and rainbows- it is a rigorous environment and it is natural to feel stressed and frustrated at times. That being said, my overall experience was overwhelmingly positive and I know that I will never live in a community like that again. I have become so incredibly nostalgic about my time at SPS. Ordinary things like hanging out in the common room with your friends and the teacher on duty, or tanning and doing homework on the chapel lawn or the docks-- those small experiences will always be remembered. St. Paul's will always be special to me.

Half of the student body is absolutely miserable. Most people LOVE it freshman and sophomore year but Junior year is absolute hell. Genuinely, if you are a person who cares about more then just what college you are going to go to and actually care about being happy and getting to be a teenager DO NOT ATTEND. I mean this genuinely. The school sends forward the 25% of the school who actually do not hate it to answer questions and be on videos and give tours so that an accurate representation of student body is not represented!!!! Clark house is so goos about mental health and getting to go there any time to sleep or go on health leave instead of actually solving the problem that so many students need that. Also while most teachers are absolutely amazing, there are definitely a bunch that are AWFUL and that you don't want at all. If you come from a ton of money you can do whatever you want and will not get kicked out.
St. Paul's was the best four years of my life. I will never again find a community like the one I had at SPS. My teachers were incredible role models and I still talk to them often. My peers challenged me, and it was a competitive environment, but not in a detrimental way; the competition simply pushed each of us to become the best student we possibly could be and taught us all how to work hard. The most notable thing I've found as a graduate of SPS is I can run into someone I hardly knew, and we connect like we are best friends. St. Paul's was truly an unforgettable experience.
