Why choose an Episcopal School?
St. George’s School follows the guiding principles of Episcopal school education:
Episcopal schools value reason as a way to true understanding. They invite all who attend and work in them – Episcopalians and non-Episcopalians, Christians and non-Christians, people of no faith tradition –to seek clarity about their own beliefs and religions and to honor those traditions more fully and faithfully in their own lives

The St. George's Difference

What makes our school different?  Keen ongoing observation of each child’s needs with instruction tailored to their skill levels and needs.  The children might meet together to discuss their study of desert creatures’ habitat, then flow into small research groups depending on interest or skill levels. While one child is reading advanced chapter books, others might be working on their phonics skills with more basic stories. Individual  “word work” with vocabulary and spelling could evolve into personal written stories. Each child works on reading book materials that match their level. Math lessons are based on a highly effective program developed in Singapore whose students have regularly scored at the top on international tests. Our students use many hands-on materials such as pattern blocks  or lego pieces to strengthen number concepts. Science and social studies are taught through monthly themes that integrate art and music. The Parish three-acre field and prayer path provides a rich source of exploration and observation through science walks.

The students enjoy a range of weekly special classes that include art, gym, library, chapel, Chinese, and music.
