St. Paul's School Reviews

45 reviews

I'd be completely lying if I said I loved my whole time at SPS. I transferred as a new sophomore and wasn't accustomed to the whole idea of what a prep school actually entailed. I felt very lost in athletics, academics, extracurriculars, socializing, and even myself. But that was because I hadn't utilized all my resources. And anybody currently at the school will know who this is when I say this: I became best friends with Humanities IV teacher and he changed my life. Every bit of success I encounter in this lifetime is because of him and his willingness to always be there for me. So before I get all mopey, I'll say this - it wasn't easy at first (but what really is?) but my experience did a full 180 once I started taking advantage of the resources and people St. Paul's had to offer.
The teachers I've had at SPS aim not to teach the students, but give them the knowledge and resources where they can learn themselves. Many teachers are open to discussion which makes introducing new ideas much easier.
The school offers endless extracurricular activities for students, from sports to clubs there are countless options and there is something for everyone. I focused most of my time on athletics, but the school offers an abundance of clubs ranging from politically based clubs, to the Taylor Swift Appreciation Society, and everything in between.
