Each term, George School Ambassadors will write blogs detailing the George School experience through their eyes. We hope you enjoy meeting Zau ’21 and following her George School journey.
My name is Zau Haskins and I am a sophomore boarder! As an eighth grader on my tour at George School, I was drawn to how friendly and warm the environment was. One of the main reasons I said yes to GS and became a tour guide was because my tour guide was very joyful, and her energy was contagious, she created a safe space for conversation for an observant and quiet person like I was and continued a connection with me while entering the school as a freshman. Coming from Atlanta, Georgia, adjusting to a new school in a completely different region without my parents was a challenge of my maturity as a young adult. While in middle school, I was very reliant on my parents. They would always check in on me to make sure I was on top of my work. When the thought of going to a boarding school was introduced as an option for me, I immediately considered it because I wanted to become more dependent on myself so that when I go to college I am prepared to knock out any obstacles that come my way. George School made this transition very easy for me because there was always an opportunity to be involved with the community through different clubs, collections, sports, and much more! Overall, George School is a very comfortable, welcoming environment to be in and easy to get accustomed to even living hours away from your home.
