On Sunday, October 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., there will be an Open House for prospective families interested in the Middle School, Grades 6-8, or Upper School, Grades 9-12. The Middle School provides a developmentally appropriate and well-rounded education that nurtures and guides girls through their transition from childhood to adolescence, balancing their desire for increased challenge, independence, and responsibility with their need for support and structure. The Upper School's academically rigorous college-preparatory curriculum has been designed to fulfill the admission requirements of the most competitive colleges and universities. Emphasis is on the development of strong writing and analytical skills within the framework of a comprehensive course of study in math, sciences, technology, and the humanities, enriched with experiences in the fine arts and athletics.
