Being There Experiences

One of the hallmarks of a Seattle Girls’ School education is the opportunity to engage in being-there experiences that not only facilitate but also cement learning. These experiences are not the exception, but the norm for teaching at SGS.

Some of my favorite memories of SGS are…being able to get learning out of an experiencenot just learning for a test or learning something so you can be quizzed on it and then totally forget it, which is how a lot of schools are. I think a lot of the information I learned at SGS really stuck with me because there was so much real-life application and it wasn’t just a multiple-choice test.
