School Notes

  • The Girls' School a unique learning environment in Austin. Embracing a liberal arts program including visual and performing arts, and Spanish beginning in Kindergarten, our girl-centric classrooms mean that it is easier for students to focus on academics in a community of like-minded peers. This is a school where girls come first. A typical Girls' School student is smart, creative, and willing to "dig in." In this past year, digging in included laying sod on our bare fields, moving monstrous compost piles, and participating in robotics, speech, art, music and writing competitions; whatever the challenge, GSA girls are ready to embrace it. This is a school where learning about each other is as important as learning "stuff," although there is certainly plenty of that. Students eagerly share their work at weekly community meetings, and have been extraordinarily successful in regional and state competitions in many areas of the curriculum.
