School Notes

  • If you ask our 530 students why they choose Marlborough, they`ll share 530 different reasons. That`s because there`s no "one way" to be a Marlborough student, which is just the way we like it. An independent school for girls located in the heart of Los Angeles, Marlborough offers both a middle school and upper school program on our unified campus. With students coming from neighborhoods across the city - including Mid-city, Pasadena, the Valley, Pacific Palisades, and the South Bay - we embrace differences, seek commonalities, and prioritize kindness to positively impact each other and our community. There's so much more to share, and we hope you'll ask questions and explore with gusto as you discover your unique reason for choosing Marlborough.
