Why a Girls' School?

Research studies conducted over the past 20 years have consistently shown that graduates of girls' schools possess many advantages over their peers at coed independent schools. These advantages include:
  • Greater academic engagement and stronger academic skills
  • More likely to aspire to graduate school
  • Greater political and community service engagement
  • More likely to see themselves as future scientists
  • Higher levels of cultural competency and political engagement
  • More likely to develop strong writing and public speaking skills
