George School Compendium

George School’s Compendium is a collection of photos, facts, essays, quotes, and curiosities designed to help you and your family understand the unique nature of George School. It is dedicated to all George School students and graduates. They were the inspiration for the layered and loving collection of facts and observations written by students, graduates, parents, teachers, and community members.

Since there are not enough pages in the Compendium to tell the whole story of what makes George School special, we created this Compendium microsite so you can “click away” to find out even more about us.
