No child is left behind and they are involved just as much as the parents.

My daughter has been at this school since it has opened. Every school has its pro & cons. The staff main objective is to make sure that "EVERYONE" gets into college. I have never met a group of teachers that are so dedicated & determined to strive for this as if they were their own children. Today my daughter got excepted along with to other school mates a FULL RIDE TO BETHUNE COOKMAN. Not only do these girls go to their regular classes at the the school some are also, taking college classes through out the city twice a week ( University of Baltimore & BCCC). Johns Hopkins University offers SAT PREP classes for the girls as well. Every summer the school sends the young ladies to various colleges to experience what college is really about. Excelling, succeeding and perseverance is what this school is made of and I'm proud that my child is a wonderful part of this greatness. Best investment is your child / children education and this was by far the best investment of allowing my child to attend "THE BALTIMORE LEADERSHIP SCHOOL FOR YOUNG WOMEN "

The curriculum lacks rigor so when the students are put to task they can't perform well and tend to look for ways to circumvent doing the work.

This school is a sham and a quick look at the curriculum and the work load shows that students are barely learning. At Grade 11 the kids have no text books to reference, the teachers write notes on the board and ask students to cram the notes for tests. The curriculum lacks rigor, the teachers are barely teaching and their job is to pass the girls from one grade to another. While the concept and idea of a leadership school is a welcome idea, the implementation and execution of this plan has sorely failed. The first graduating class is the Class of 2017 and as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The college admission rates and the admitting colleges will speak volumes as to how well this school has prepared the girls for college.

Curriculum lacks rigor so students are short changed and dont have an opportunity to work hard and develop these qualities.

My school is good...., educational wise, but they don't have sports and cubs for high school. Most of the clubs are limited only to Middle School...( Probably because they want them to stay and not leave like all the other 8th graders in 2012-2013)

This is a wonderful charter school that gives girls the opportunity for a great public education. The girls get to do all kinds of hands on learning. They have a number of enrichment activities like after school STEM Program, Cool Women Hot Jobs and a full time college counselor working with students on college access. This is school has dedicated teachers and administrators who love to teach girls!
