My daughter is attending SGS for the first time this year. The first day of school, I remember leaving her in the classroom with the small group of students sitting at the tables in a circle, with nervous eyes on each other and their new space. Later that day, they were laughing, joking and smiling like they had known each other for years. They disagree, of course, and don't always get along, but they deal with issues as a community, like a family. That is one of the wonderful things about SGS, everyone knows your child, they know when she is having a hard time and support her, they take the time to get to know what motivates her to be the best her she can be. The SGS community is wrapped around each girl from the first day, and it shows. My daughter LOVES Seattle Girls' School, and I love it as well. Last year, she sadly began to loose the joy of learning. She was broken, by the memorization, drilling and testing that was happening in her old school. Today she comes home every day excited about something she learned, or a project she is working on. I don't even know if she knows how much she is learning, because she is having fun doing it! Thank you SGS.
