School Notes

  • Education at Santa Fe Girls' School is a dynamic, open-ended, personal process that requires dialogue and exchange of ideas among students and teachers. The school focuses on building students' critical and divergent thinking skills as they learn to articulate opinions. SFGS believes that diversity in the classroom creates excitement for learning. Multiple perspectives from students and from a variety of texts provide stimuli for lively discussion.

You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
