One of the most important things you can give your daughter is self-confidence and self-belief – qualities that girls’ schools deliver in abundance.
Girls’ schools minimise stereotyped, gender-weighted expectations. There is no such thing as a girl’s subject or a boy’s subject and girls are free to follow their inclinations with little of the pressure they might otherwise feel.
Whether a girl wants to be an astronaut, ambassador, author, or attorney, we really feel that girls need to know – not just think, but really know, deep down – that there’s nothing that can stand in their way. That’s the incredibly important message girls’ schools send to girls each and every day.
We believe that message, embedded in the nature of girls’ schools, provides powerful, relevant advantages and creates the best environments for girls to learn, grow, and develop.
“I have developed new friendships that I know will continue beyond Marymount and have learnt that with all the young women in my grade it is important to love and respect each other. From this a community of love is formed that has immensely helped me and encouraged me throughout the IB.”
