At St. Paul’s School I visited with a student whom I helped with placement. A tenth grade boarder, he came from a junior boarding school.
With boarding school already under his belt, his transition has been smooth both academically and socially. He arrived at SPS with study skills and organizational skills all in place.
He enjoys being in a coeducational school and having more freedoms than a highly structured junior school. He loves his challenging classes and great faculty.
He has only been home once because he thoroughly enjoys staying on campus and participating in all the activities. With his free time he spends a lot working out in there fitness center which is very important to him.
All in all a great transition from junior to secondary boarding school for him.
Oh, and, I can’t forget that he said the food was great.
A new science building is under construction and will open in Fall 2011. I saw happy, healthy students running to classes.
