School Notes

  • The Bryn Mawr School is one of the nation`s oldest college-preparatory schools for girls, founded in 1885 by five women determined to provide girls the same educational benefits that boys received. The idea was bold, courageous, and daring for its time. The inaugural curriculum included modern and classical languages, English, history, math, the latest scientific theories, and a focus on physical education- all of which stretched the boundaries of social acceptance. Today, The Bryn Mawr School is PreK12 and remains steadfast in its founding mission of rigorous academics and stretching the limits of imagination and acceptance.

Hands down, the best decision we've ever made for our daughter. She is challenged and supported. We're watching her curiousity, independence and confidence soar as she moved from Lower to Middle School. Teachers are amazing, dedicated, and know what girls need to thrive. We are grateful for this extended community.
