I chose George School because of their loving and accepting community. The first time I visited GS was at the annual open house in 2016. A student gave me a tour of the campus, he talked about the classes, clubs, sports, IB Diploma, and so much more. It was also Harvest Weekend, so the whole campus smelled like apple butter. Everybody I met that day at GS was so nice and welcoming. I could immediately feel the sense of community. I fell in love. The George School community is one of the most accepting, hospitable communities I have ever encountered. There are so many people of different backgrounds and ethnicities and everyone gets along so great. The teachers try so hard to make their students do well, encourage you to ask questions, and try to form close bonds with you. I was not even nervous on my first day of freshman year because I knew that no matter what I did or who I talked to, people would accept me for who I was.
