Taking what she learns and enjoys at George School, Isabel is not only prepared to move forward herself, but is eager to pay it forward to the community.

Is there a class that made a big impact on you?

In my junior year, I was enrolled in AP Biology, and it was one of the best science classes I ever took. It provided me with a more analytical and in-depth understanding of the field through a variety of activities. After completing this class, I feel extremely prepared to continue my scientific studies in college.

Describe an exciting moment at George School.

One of the most exciting times was when a peer and I won the Green Initiative Project with our plan to convert the current lighting fixtures in Marshall to LED lights. It was incredible because it gave me with the opportunity to give back to a community that has always been there for me.

Has anything surprised you about George School?

I was surprised by the incredible number of activities planned every weekend. I love going to the events because they are really fun and offer a great way to bond with fellow students. Some of my favorites include trips to New York, cookie decorating during the holiday season, and the slip-and-slide for Student Council Weekend in the spring.

More about Isabel:

A Lead Tour Ambassador, Isabel has taken a mix of IB and AP courses at George School as well as ceramics, which has given her “the freedom to create both practical and artistic pieces.” She feels fortunate to have gone on the school service-learning trip to Vietnam, where participants helped build a garden, interacted with children affected by Agent Orange, and learned about Vietnamese culture.
