There were many fantastic stories at St. Paul's School for Girls this year. As we prepare to welcome 2019, join us in taking a look back at 10 of those stories from 2018.
On Thursday, December 6, the Board of Trustees of The St. Paul's Schools announced the appointment of Dr. Jefferson Huang as the Schools' inaugural president.

At the St. Paul's School for Girls Leadership Donor Celebration on Thursday, October 18, we announced the surprise dedication of the Penny B.

Head of School Penny Evins shared a talk with SPSG students about what it means to be a bold and courageous woman.
On Friday, September 21, alumna Heather Davidson Chilcot '98 returned to campus to share a special Ring Day address to the Class of 2020 during morning Prayers.

Kinetic Sculptures are amphibious, human-powered works of art, custom built for the race. Each May, the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) hosts the East Coast Kinetic Sculpture Race Championship on the shore of Baltimore's Harbor in central Maryland. The eight-hour race covers 14 miles—mostly on pavement, but also through mud and sand and a trip into the Chesapeake Bay. Go out and support our team of engineers as they navigate water, sand, mud, and land through the course. This year's theme is Myths & Tall Tales, and our students have been hard at BOTH their entries!
"Within schools, we discuss feedback, evaluations, and growth with ease — when it comes to students. Whether in advanced calculus or on the basketball court, we provide them with formal and informal assessments on a regular basis. We measure their understanding, and we craft commentaries about their performance, habits and character. However, delivering and receiving feedback is less comfortable for adults. Five years ago, when I was in my first year at St. Paul's School for Girls, I set out to change this dynamic."
