5.00 (1 review)
- 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.
