Cultivating Resilient Learners
A supportive all-girl learning environment encourages girls to take risks without fear of failure.

By the time girls progress to Middle School, they are confident in their abilities, understanding that perseverance helps them grow.

Oral proficiency is a priority in our award-winning lower school world languages program so our classroom focus is on oral communication. The vocabulary we teach in our Spanish and Chinese classes is based on concrete concepts taught in science. Research indicates this approach makes the new language more memorable and relevant for students. Our world language and science teachers regularly coordinate their lesson plans.
