School Notes

  • Marlborough School provides a learning environment where young women develop self-confidence, creativity, a sense of responsibility, and moral decisiveness. The School's program encourages students to discover their potential, to think critically, and to develop intellectual curiosity. Students learn to set priorities, develop decision-making skills, and value the process of the educational experience. Marlborough School is a community that includes students, faculty, staff, families, alumnae, and trustees. As a girls' school, we celebrate the importance of our long history and tradition of quality education for young women. We understand and address their needs, while exploring how societal roles of men and women are changing. We emphasize the process of personal growth, encourage cooperation, and foster close association among members of the community to promote emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being.
  • Marlborough School strives to understand and respect the differences inherent in a multicultural urban environment, and to reflect this diversity in our own community. We encourage an understanding of the complexities of global issues while teaching young women to face the world with courage, compassion, flexibility, and commitment.
