From The Head of School
As I begin my eighth year as Head of School at Marymount, and with my previous work at Harvard University, I’ve learned that students who are graduates of all-girls schools are truly distinct. There is no match for the self-awareness, confidence and poise these girls exude in their day-to-day lives. It is a gift many of our alumnae tell us they continue to use in the board room, on stage and in their efforts to better the world around them.
At the beginning of each school year, I love to hear the first cadence of laughter reverberate in the hallways as our girls return to campus. Laughter, happiness and exuberance are not small things in a learning environment, especially in light of recent media emphasis on adolescent stress, particularly in girls.
