The Extended Essay is a prolonged adventure, one much like the one experienced by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland who finds it “curiouser and curiouser” as she grows, “opening out like the largest telescope that ever was” just as our George School students grow, too, their vision expanding purposefully outward yet also turning self-reflectively within.
Celebration for Accepted Students
