Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning The LWGMS curriculum is designed to cultivate intellectual curiosity and a drive to social action in each LWGMS girl. In a safe and supportive environment that challenges each girl to reach her potential, experienced teachers guide our students to develop the creative confidence to meet the many social, emotional, physical, and academic changes of early adolescence. At the heart of the curriculum is a commitment to social justice.
