With two children At St. George's Episcopal School for the 4th year in a row, we are very confident to say that it is a great school. Our children love it, their progress has been astonishing. Three student visitors from Guatemala and from Germany have loved it too. It feels more like a great extended family, where children are taught important life values along with the curriculum. At St. Georges, everyone cares and it shows!
St. George's Episcopal School has been a lifesaver for my son and my family. The academics are excellent and developmentally appropriate. The faculty and administration are caring and willing to work with your family to get your child to perform to the best of their ability, academically and socially. I feel that he will graduate this school with all of the tools and knowledge he needs to succeed in a challenging high school. I could not be happier with this decision.
I am so happy my wife and I selected St George's Episcopal School for four of my six children. But more importantly my children were happy and extremely well prepared for HS. My son, who was the first to attend St George's and needed resources was awarded a significant scholastic scholarship to college. My other son and daughter who graduated from St George's are doing extremely well in HS. I still have a fourth grader who is a bundle of joy and cannot stop talking about how fun St George's is. I highly recommend St George's to any one who wants their children's education top be challenging while having fun. They will learn the love of learning.
We have been at St. George's for 7 years now, and it is absolutely the BEST school for all 3 of my children. The student teacher ratio is the lowest of any school in the city, and it shows. Each child is truly valued for their strengths and gifts, and is gently nurtured and challenged in a caring but rigorous environment. There are other private schools in New Orleans who have a flashier name or reputation, but St. George's is the real deal. The school quietly prepares each child for success, while developing their character and individuality. I have recommended it to dozens of friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so long after my children have graduated!
It s so important to boost a child in their early years, and St. George's could. Having access to on-site speech therapy means that our child now reads well above grade-level, and he s soaring in math. St. George s small class size and caring teachers have made a huge difference for our child. We ve enjoyed getting to know our son s classmates and their parents, and have made wonderful friends. Ultimately, academic success is a defining measure. Beyond the extra care it offers, the school s talented and gifted program is a strong draw. St. George s has a strong record of sending graduates to the city s best high schools.
Ratings can be misleading, since they are anonymous, and could have been posted by disgruntled former staff, former students, etc.,,and the very negative ones on here should be taken with a MAJOR grain of salt. As to the principal: Dr Eichberger has shaped this school with extraordinary vision and purpose. Whoever said he is past his prime and allows bullying, etc below is telling an outright lie. Student/Teacher ratio: Best in town. Look it up. Bottom line is, we have two kids here, and could not be happier. The faculty are amazing, and the kids seem more mature and bright than any other school we looked at.
I am an alum of St. George's. This was the most amazing learning environment. The teachers were so caring and were truly invested in my social, emotional, and academic success. I participated in the talented and gifted program and found this to be both an enriching and challenging experience. Upon graduating from St. George's, I was truly prepared for high school, college, and beyond! I would highly recommend this school!
St. George's School provided all three of my children with a wonderful education. Their gifted and talented program challenged my children to reach their fullest potential.
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.
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.
