A Girls' School, A Great Choice
For over 100 years, Woodward has been committed to a school environment that places girls first. We believe that a single sex educational setting is especially beneficial to the academic and personal development of adolescent girls. A girls' school provides a unique sanctuary and allows girls the freedom to be themselves during this formative period. Students at a girls' school enjoy every opportunity in a connected, supported culture which works to counter the complex and often negative influences of the mass media. Girls at Woodward are the academic leaders, the public speakers, the editors of school publications, the student government leaders, the writers, the actors, the musicians, and the athletes. They thrive in classrooms where they study, speak, debate, and take risks without the natural social concerns associated with mixed gender classrooms. We support our girls as they discover themselves, meet challenges, and become confident in exploring their talents and passions in and beyond the classroom.
Graduates of Woodward and other girls' schools consistently report that their school experience gave them more self confidence, helped them focus on academics, encouraged them to test themselves and take risks in a positive environment, and convinced them that women can achieve at the highest levels. A girls' school is a great choice.
