    This year was my first at St. Paul’s School, and so far I have only good things to say about my experience. Overall, SPS has given me the opportunity to expand my horizons into different activities, subjects, and ideas which have, in my opinion, helped me grow as a person. Due to its selective nature, the school is made up entirely of students who want to be there and this affects classes and everyday life for the better. Because it’s relatively small, I find that it’s really easy to make friends and the student body feels more like a family than anything else. There are still a lot of things that the school needs to work on, such as greater diversity and art culture, but the administration is very receptive to the feelings of our students and has addressed them constructively. I would recommend SPS to anyone!

    I transferred to St. Paul's as a sophomore and attended for three full years. I can't say enough good things about the academics, and the setting and resources (teachers, advisers, college advising, etc.) are obviously nothing short of incredible.

    If you are considering going, know that you'll make really good friends and be expected to work hard. The all-residential aspect is distinctive, as is morning chapel. The sports requirement was an unexpectedly fun and rewarding area for me to grow and challenge myself.

    My time there was influential in my development both in the sense that I became more confident, diligent, and analytical and in that I formed strong friendships with those around me. There were elements of the school culture that felt insular and sometimes stifling, but going to St. Paul's was the best option for me at the time and I am grateful for the experience on the whole.
    The faculty definitely played the most significant role during my time here. From their roles as coaches, to mentors, to nightly on-duty advisors, it is clear that the bond formed between the students and their educators extends far beyond the classroom. For this, I am forever thankful for the relationships I have made here.

    There are, however, some things about the student body that could be changed.

    I happen to be one of the few students on a full scholarship to have attended this school. I was unfortunately faced with issues that stemmed from my culture, gender, and financial background. As with many other private institutions, poor students of color will often find themselves ostracized from the student body. This can be witnessed at many school events at St. Paul's. In the future, I hope to continue seeing more faculty and students dedicate themselves to changing the culture that has allowed this to happen.
