- INDEPENDENT THINKERS
Hutchison founder Mary Grimes Hutchison was ahead of her time when in 1902 she envisioned a school to develop young women who are resilient, independent thinkers. In a supportive, all-girl learning environment, girls are encouraged to speak their minds, whether they are leading a parent conference or engaging in a lively discourse on world events. Beyond school walls, Hutchison girls are defined by their poise and confidence.
- FORWARD-THINKING FACULTY
We understand how girls learn and what helps them succeed. We set high standards for what each girl should gain from her time at Hutchison. Our exceptional teachers make it happen. Hutchison`s forward-thinking academic culture thrives on teachers who constantly challenge themselves to grow professionally and evaluate emerging trends in their fields. Visiting Scholars enhance the classroom experience for students and teachers alike.
- A SENSE OF PURPOSE
Hutchison prepares girls for lives of integrity and character. We are founded on Christian principles and values, and we welcome students of all faiths and teach appreciation for each other's differences. Regular chapel meetings, planned by the girls with faculty supervision, are a chance to reflect on common values and grow from sharing different perspectives. Our unique leadership development program in Upper School weaves together internships, service learning, and philanthropic literacy opportunities to help girls develop and implement sustainable solutions for pressing societal issues.

Hutchison School is by far the best all-girls school in Memphis. Administrators and faculty are dedicated to not only the girls academic success but also invested in their emotional and social well being. Girls become strong leaders with strong voices and can do anything they imagine with the love, support and encouragement from the school.Girls graduate ready for college, the 21st century and beyond!

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything.

With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
