Julia Morgan School For Girls

Julia Morgan School For Girls Photo #1
Julia Morgan School for Girls, the first all girls middle school in the East Bay, opened its doors in the fall of 1999.
The primary objective of the Julia Morgan School is to prepare our students to be the confident, capable, creative, and compassionate women of tomorrow.
We are dedicated to the intellectual, creative, social and emotional growth of girls during their critical middle school years.
Our goal is to provide educational opportunities and positive role models not fully afforded girls in coeducational institutions.
We strive to create an arena for academic excellence, critical thinking, positive risk-taking, and the development of individual talents.
Learning will extend beyond the walls of the classroom into the community to foster compassion and social responsibility.
Julia Morgan School is committed to creating a school community that reflects the remarkable diversity of the East Bay.
In addition, we aspire to serve as a resource on girls' education for public and independent school educators.
