Marymount girls make, create and innovate!

Marymount girls are designers, artists, coders, engineers, makers and doers. They’re inspired to solve the world’s most pressing problems—and we’re giving them the tools and training to do it!

Among independent schools, Marymount is a leader in technology. We believe scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and the applied use of technology are imperative skills for the future. We believe all students—especially girls—should be challenged to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. This is why we’re committed to a dynamic and interactive STEAM program.

STEAM is much more than a collection of academic disciplines—it's an approach to the world that encourages creative thinking, problem-solving, and a willingness to take risks and learn from setbacks.

Here are just a few examples of how we’re integrating STEAM into the curriculum:

  • An AP Psychology class created puzzle rooms to challenge their classmates.
  • Students used 3D Design to enhance the science department's aquarium.
  • Geometry classes used the Makerspace to explore laser-cut snowflakes and construct scaled castles.
  • Renowned sculptor Dr. George Hart collaborated with our students in the Makerspace to create a four-foot tall sculpture that now hangs in our Digital Resource Library (Check out the video below)!
In the graduating class of 2019:
  • 95% of students took at least one AP/honors science course
  • 24% of students took TWO science classes, completing their time at MHS with a total of 5 years of science
  • 2 students took 6 science classes over their 4 years
  • 3 students have been named co-authors in scientific publications
