SPSG Named a 2018 Baltimore Sun Media Group Top Workplace!
We at SPSG are thrilled to have been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Baltimore Sun for the third year in a row in the small-sized business category! The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered earlier this year, and we are honored that our faculty and staff shared their positive sentiments about our community.
"It is thrilling to know that the folks with whom I have the privilege of partnering with each day voted SPSG as a Top Workplace. Anyone who claims education as their craft, whether faculty or staff, knows that relationships are what great schools are made of. It is the people of SPSG who make this a top place to work, and it is truly a community that feels like home. Team SPSG is a special group, and I continue to learn and become a stronger and better person with their company and support."

"St. Paul's School for Girls is much more than just a school; it is a community of learning where every student, faculty member, and staff member has a voice. We have a "dare to dream big" philosophy, in which no idea is a bad one and every student is fully encouraged and supported. As for the faculty and staff, we are part of a family in which you can feel the camaraderie and contagious energy in every building, classroom, and conversation. At SPSG, teachers are passionate about their subjects and students respond with a love for learning."

"The St. Paul's School for Girls' community holds a special place in my heart as my second family. I treasure how the school gathers each morning for Prayers and Chapel to celebrate the values and traditions of its Episcopal identity, and in my eyes, it is our truly caring community that separates SPSG from other schools. As a community, we allow each student to discover her own strengths and abilities. I am blessed to work with such a talented and inspiring faculty on a daily basis."

"At SPSG, I enjoy both working with our students in the single-gender setting, and collaborating with coaches across our coed campus. I appreciate working with students in an environment where they can be themselves and find their own voices. More than elsewhere, I find our girls seeking opportunities to push themselves, and I've seen them flourish; whether as a champion or as a nascent athlete. SPSG is such a joyful and positive school where we take healthy risks to try new things and build new programs for our Gators. I find it so rewarding to work alongside colleagues who are invested in educating the whole child and teaching our mission."

"I value working at SPSG because of the community. It is not always easy working full-time and caring for my own three children, but every time I step onto campus, I feel appreciated, challenged, valued, and inspired. The students are eager, respectful, and engaged; the faculty is continuously striving to learn new techniques and serve the girls the best we can; the staff is committed to making the day-to-day environment safe, calm, comfortable, and cutting-edge. I feel truly blessed to be a part of this community."

"I enjoy working at SPSG because I work with creative, innovative, and smart people! SPSG is a nimble, flexible institution that asks itself, everyday, "How can we do it better? How can we deliver on our mission to provide 440 girls the very best experience each and every day?" We consistently seek opportunities to make our strengths stronger. This is felt within SPSG throughout our students, faculty, and staff."

"A former teacher of mine once told me "I hope that you find a job that you love going to everyday," and I have found that at St. Paul's School for Girls. I have the privilege of working with amazing colleagues who make me laugh and smile on a regular basis and who provide opportunities for me to grow as a person and as an educator. I am inspired as I watch my students learn, grow, and prepare themselves to lead in our increasingly complex world. SPSG is truly a rewarding place to work. "
