The LWGMS curriculum is designed to cultivate intellectual curiosity and a drive to social action in each LWGMS girl.

Three years at LWGMS provides students with tools and experiences they need to grow into confident, compassionate young women. At LWGMS, girls take on all leadership roles, explore non-traditional courses, and act as role models to their peers. Our students get three years of freedom to be themselves while continually exploring who they are. Graduates report high self-esteem, motivation, and academic success in high school and college.

Our outstanding faculty draws on best practices in girls' education as they challenge students to be independent, confident learners. From orientation to graduation, LWGMS students benefit from innovative teaching techniques and a program of study that is rigorous, relevant, and fun.

Throughout the curriculum, principles of STEAM education are infused; students practice presentation and public speaking skills; and in subjects from science to Spanish, social justice persists as a central aspect of teaching and learning. LWGMS students also have many opportunities for leadership, collaboration with peers, exploring their interests, providing service to their community, and being part of a team.

Every LWGMS student can expect to perform, present, debate, and speak in front of their classmates and larger public audiences every year. Every student participates and cheers on classmates as they do the same in return. These experiences help our students become confident young people with strong voices.

Learning how to communicate, critically analyze, problem-solve, collaborate, create, innovate, and empathize are life skills necessary for success in this century. By learning these skills in an environment that encourages positive risk-taking, our students become comfortable advocating for their ideas and for themselves. Our curriculum enables students to solve problems, design solutions, create meaning, and prepare for a complex and challenging world.
