Come join our developmental discussion on how we can guide our young children in tolerance. What strategies can we use to help them be more aware of themselves and others around them as well as the impact that actions and words can have on others? How do we create a home life and culture that nurtures and fosters tolerance of others?
Students' Self Efficacy: The Real Difference Maker in All-Girls' Education (Middle and Upper School)
Dr. Marissa Muoio, Head of Upper School
August 12 at 6 PM
Girls’ schools create a culture of achievement in which academic progress is of great importance, and the discovery and development of a girl's individual potential is paramount. During this session, we will discuss how girls' school environments are not only institutions where girls take center stage, but places where they can envision their full potential. Girls' schools provide students with the gift of an invaluable awareness of their role as women to challenge and change the way they are often labeled in society and the importance of pushing those boundaries.
