Yardley, PennsylvaniaDickinson College
Molly connected to more than literature in her English classes at George School.

How prepared were you for college?

I left George School well prepared. I appreciated the academic rigor, wonderful teachers, and emphasis on a global education, community and sustainability—all very similar to Dickinson. Throughout my years in high school, I was able to build my confidence and discover my passions with the help of a giving community of people who were invested in my growth. George School did not just help me prepare for college—it helped me prepare to become a conscientious citizen of the world at large, for which I am incredibly grateful.

Was there a class that had a profound impact on you?

Sophomore year, I looked forward to going to Eric Wolarsky’s English class every day. When we were reading a play, a poem, or a novel. Eric would show us a painting or a song having to do with the time period of the piece of the writing. It helped me make connections to the world beyond English class and understand the big picture.

What surprised you about George School?

I was constantly surprised by how talented my peers were. In musicals and concerts and sporting events, everyone at George School has something to offer to the community.
