Our Perspective

How we see St. George's School of Montreal

St. George's was founded in 1930 by a group of parents who wanted something different for their children, namely an education that was less based in rote learning and more based in experience and respect for the individual learners. Then, as now, the students didn't wear uniforms, and lessons were learned experientially, through hands-on lived experience. Students take part in projects and programs with students throughout the school, not only their immediate age mates. Students are encouraged to follow the paths of their curiosity, and then given the latitude and the resources in order to do so. That said, there is a structure, too, and the academic program has, throughout the life of the school, proved itself through real, observable results.

Message from school leadership

Michael O'Connor, Head of School

Every school aspires to provide the knowledge and skills that are required to transform their students into accomplished and confident adults. To a great extent, this transformation is accomplished by the timely and caring interventions of their teachers. 
At St. George’s, we believe that our programs provide appropriate challenges and engagement, even as students begin their first years of learning. To fulfill this promise, we offer differentiated approaches and programs in all core disciplines. As our students mature and gain confidence, our curriculum offers additional challenges through enriched, accelerated, and ‘Advanced Placement’ classes. Students are offered a rich assortment of options so that they may experience new and exciting domains of development in areas such as Marine Biology, Engineering, Psychology and Media, as well as the opportunity to pursue co-curricular options such as Biomimicry, Jazz Band, Glee, Stage Crew, Robotics and Debating.

At St. George’s, we believe that education is best served by establishing a deep and authentic relationship with each student, as a confirmation of our unwavering belief in each child’s unique passions and aspirations. We see our role as enablers, unleashing the amazing talents that lie within each child. To provide a fertile terrain for personal and academic growth,  this process requires trust and validation from peers and adults.

We believe that teaching is an intuitive art that is further enhanced through our greater understanding of each learner’s character, and the development of their self-awareness, their empathy for others, their perseverance and their sense of optimism- all of which provide the foundation for an enriching life. At St. George’s, we measure our success by the degree of our students’ aspirations to lead a fulfilled life.

We believe that education is a real-time experience and that it happens best through real-life inquiries and projects where each student becomes an agent for change, both locally and amongst extended communities, and where the exploration of one’s true self becomes a profound and rewarding process. We also believe that as our students discover themselves, and as they explore the world around them, their ability to make sense, to create, to self-regulate and to become solid life-long learners and transformation leaders will naturally follow. 

Based on the child-centered approach of John Dewey, St. George’s School of Montreal was founded in 1930 by an enlightened group of progressive parents and educators from Sir George Williams (Concordia) and McGill Universities.  Our commitment to the individual growth and development of each child continues to the present day. We are always pleased to welcome prospective parents who wish to learn more as to how our unique, time-tested approach supports each child on a personal and academic level.
