Plenty of opportunities to get involved
Much of what students learn at Saint George’s happens outside the classroom. Lower School students gain new skills through Chess Club, join the Little Dragon Cheerleaders, and discover the fun of coding their own video games. They enjoy after-school sports camps and private music lessons on campus. Middle School students win statewide honors on Math Counts and Math Is Cool teams, learn about sustainability and community in the Green Club, and make tortillas from scratch in the International Club.
By the time students reach Upper School, they have an idea of what they like and can start specializing. Dragons measure up against the top engineering students in the world through FIRST Robotics tournaments. They compete in math and economics contests during lunch breaks. Both Knowledge Bowl and History Bowl teams have made their mark on the state and nationally. The Associated Student Body (ASB) helps keep the school running smoothly. In the Community
Service club, Dragons put our mission into action. Our Outdoor Club members hike, canoe, bike, and ski. Day trips often start right on our 120 acre campus. Longer trips afford students the chance to learn how to survive and thrive in nature.
Across the divisions, Dragon Clubs encourage students to hone old skills and practice new ones. Students often remember their coaches and leaders as important teachers, even though they never receive grades.
The SGS Robotics teams (FRC and FTC) gathered for an end of the season barbeque. See a Photo Gallery, including of them honoring advisors Rick DeFord, Judi Morgan, and Clive Luiten for their mentoring over the years.
The SGS FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) robots competed in a multi-round event on April 20. See videos of Team #7935 and Team #6128 in action that day in the Upper School Courtyard. These were rounds where the first 30 seconds was in autonomous mode (pre-programmed) and the remaining 2 minutes was controlled by a pair of students.
One of the two SGS robotics teams participated in the FIRST Tech Challenge competition on March 31 and April 1. See a YouTube Video of them earning points by collecting and firing orange rings into a container and knocking over red plastic sticks in a 2-minute round.
