Small class sizes, caring faculty and Innovative programs are some of the factors that make St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School (SMLS) the educational journey of a lifetime for girls. But at the heart is our commitment to the development of girls and young women. In an all-girls' environment, programs are designed and delivered to accommodate the predominant ways in which girls learn. By meeting the gender and age-related needs in the junior and intermediate years, the foundation is set to support the "I know I can" way of thinking we have here at SMLS. For more than 118 years, we have been helping young women reach their full potential. Research suggests that girls' brains develop differently from boys' brains, and the evidence is clear. At SMLS we plan our programs around the learning needs and preferences of girls. As a result, they blossom. When the world calls her name - she'll be ready!
