Looking back on my years at Geneva School, I can see a clear progression of care and attention, certainly within the classroom but also way beyond, that is unusual for elementary or middle school students. I was challenged to not only work hard, but also ask questions. Teachers were just as available to talk through questions and uncertainties I had with my faith as they were to cool me down after losing back-to-back games of dodgeball at recess. As I grew into an Upper School student, the care from teachers seemed to adjust accordingly, as they knew we were preparing to face formative years as young believers and scholars. Some of the closest friendships I had growing up were formed at Geneva School.
