- 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. Class size is limited to 15 students, creating an atmosphere for free exchange and examining of ideas. Most SFGS students graduate from 8th grade with 11th-12th grade academic skill equivalencies.
