I agree with everything previously said about St George's. They cast a wide net promising everything to everyone and delivers little to most. The Headmaster is well past his prime and caters to the children and parents of the wealthy. He allows sub-par teaching, bullying, and refuses to adequately handle disciplinary problems of the rich and famous. On the other hand, if your child is very high functioning and the parents bring their money and cache to the school, your child will get a good education and will thrive moving on to high school and college. Here's the truth of that matter...THOSE CHILDREN WOULD THRIVE AND DO WELL ANYWHERE...ANYWHERE. St Georges should get no credit for that!!!
I agree with the lip service comment. St George's tell you exactly what you want to hear but they don't deliver. It was good in the beginning but went down hill quickly. My kids would come home and tell me about all the misbehaviour in the class and how nothing was done. Very inconsistent teaching and homework. They charge a great deal of money for the poor service they provide. We ended pulling our kids out. They are so many other fantastic private schools to pick from.
All of my children went to St. George's School and received a wonderful education. They all went on to be top students in the high schools of their choice. The individual attention afforded all students makes a big difference.
My experience with this school has been unsatisfactory. It has been such a huge disappointment. The school felled on so many different levels to meet our kids needs. You seem to get special privileges depending on status and how much contributions you give. And the other gets attention is, if your children have special needs. Too many different type of kids blended together!! Because the normal kids get lost in the shuffle, so the school can keep their funding for accepting special needs children. It honestly gives ISAS a bad reputation.
Lots of lip service, but little follow through. There is also a LARGE turnover within the faculty, which does not speak well of the school.
Our son received an excellent educational foundation at St. George's. He found academic success and developed self confidence that gave him the ability to acheive great heights in high school. We will always be grateful for his years at St. George's. It was wonderful experience for our family.
My kids attend St. George's and it has been a wonderful experience for them and us as a family. The faculty are very loving and patient. The material presented is motivating and has encouraged our kids to strive for excellence. The art program is fantastic. We especially love the gym and athletic facilities. Our kids participated in a variety of activities including, sports, theatre and oratory. My children have also excelled in the French program which is a fabulous foreign language program at St. George's. We would recommend this school to anyone looking for a school with a family feel that challenges the students to excel. There is somthing for everyone at this school.
St. George's tells you what you want to hear when you tour the school, but it does not deliver. The faculty quality is inconsistent and the student/teacher ratio in the classrooms seem to be growing. Our child's experience was positive initially, but we have grown disappointed with her learning situation as the time has gone by. It is definitely not worth its price tag. Your best bet is to look elsewhere.
My son has attended this school for four years, and it has been a wonderful experience. Outstanding staff, great facilities. Highly recommended.
St. George's has an excellent teaching staff and really good 'extras' (athletics, art, music, robotics club, gifted program, resource, etc.). They have the best student to teacher ratio in the city, so kids get lots of individualized attention.
St. George's was a major disappointment for both of my children. The academics are adequate but the problem is that they give more lip service to caring about kids than they actually are capable of. We paid the money but don't feel like we got our money's worth. St. George's does not deserve its reputation.
St.Georges is a wonderful school. The students are really nice and they are very welcoming. The teachers are of best quality and they don't mind taking out time to work which each child. The campus is positively gorgeous and the art is of the finest. Trus me your child will love this school. In this school your child will get opportunities to go on funominal field trips that will definitely stimulate the mind. The school is just wonderful and the location is great.
