Coordination

St. Paul’s and SPSG will promote greater cooperation and coordination that supports the missions of both schools with respect to education, student life and overall operations.

I’m happy the schools are moving toward more coordination, because it will make things better for students at both schools.

Emily Wunder Profile

“The relationship between St. Paul’s and SPSG is a little complicated, but I like explaining it to people. St. Paul’s is like our school too. We have the opportunity to work together and take classes together, but there’s also a fun part of it. It’s fun to go to football games and the basketball championship. Girls at other schools don’t have that connection with boys’ schools.

I used to have a Japanese class that was all girls, even though it was at St. Paul’s. Now we have two boys. It’s more fun, because they bring more personality into the class.

I started at St. Paul’s in pre-first. I still see guys that I knew back then and get along with. We see each other and hang out. I’m happy the schools are moving toward more coordination, because it will make things better for students at both schools.”

Emily Wunder SPSG ’14 enrolled at St. Paul’s in pre-first. President of the Class of 2014, she coordinates senior gifts, runs the class meeting and will be responsible for alumnae outreach after graduation. Emily is an honors student, who has earned recognition for her study in Japanese.
