Committed to teaching and learning that is active and agile, St. George’s places a high value on relationships that foster confidence and curiosity in students so that they can courageously chase their dreams. When we greet students, laugh with them, connect with them, and show kindness to them, we name them as God’s children and connect them to our rich Episcopal culture. In so doing, we affirm their place in the St. George’s community and create a culture in which they can best learn, grow, and thrive.
St. George’s will be the right school for teacher who put the needs of each student in the center of their work, every day, every class, every interaction; want to challenge their own practice whenever there is an opportunity to serve students better; model the characteristics of great collaborators by participating in departments, grade levels, and divisions; are ready to be the reason that a student and family should choose our school; are deeply aligned with our strategic plan and earnestly committed to moving it forward; reach out not only to the students who make it easy on them, but also to all those who don’t; pitch in when they can, however they can; and we’ll be the right school for those who strive to be the sort of people we describe in our Portrait of a Graduate.
