    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 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.
    SPS has something unique most other boarding schools do not have.
    As a student who has friends and siblings in other boarding schools, I find the 100% boarding to truly capture the very essence of boarding school.
    There is less distraction and pretentiousness here and we all go through the same thing. The campus does not get deserted on weekends and the relatively small size makes it feel like family. The academics superb.
