Teaching Girls the Way Girls Learn Best

At SPSG we believe in single-sex education for girls.

Research supports that girls at all-girl’s schools are more self-confident, have heightened career aspirations, develop broader interests, are more willing to accept challenges, engage in more leadership opportunities, and embrace achievement in academics, the arts, and sports.

Teachers at SPSG understand the techniques that make learning more satisfying for girls. Within our challenging college preparatory program, we encourage collaboration, hands-on experimentation, interdisciplinary learning, group projects, discussion, risk-taking, positive evaluation, and prompt feedback, learning tools that prove successful with girls.

Recent studies have proven the self-confidence, political awareness, and academic ability of single-sex educated girls and concluded that girls' school graduates have a documented advantage over co-ed graduates. 

Recently, the Executive Director of the National Coalition of Girls' School visited SPSG!
