The Linden School: Challenging Girls to be Lifelong Learners

The Linden School knows girls with academic potential are not always served well in large, co-educational classrooms.  Small, inclusive classes ensure Linden girls are constantly engaged and encouraged to take active learning roles every day.

 
An intellectually stimulating environment

Intellectual growth is a cornerstone of the Linden approach. The school’s inquiry-based approach allows teachers to teach in ways that make space for a variety of learning styles by using engaging hands-on assignments, case studies, and cooperative strategy games. Students benefit from subject enrichment and guided independent study. Linden is best known for engaging girls in science, technology, engineering, writing (TopGradeEssay) and math (STEM) from an early age, knowing that this can directly influence their choice of post-secondary education and career paths. As a result, every Linden high school student chooses more than the required number of courses in math and science.

Finding their voice

Linden girls are encouraged to find and express their own voices.  Faculty members aren’t simply lecturers, but active learning partners who offer opportunities for girls to develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills by contributing meaningfully to classroom activities and discussions.  Students  have many opportunities to have their voices heard, from the school’s Science Fair in which girls are encouraged to share their findings, to senior leadership initiatives such as peer mentoring, coaching and community initiatives. 

“Because Linden specializes in how girls learn best – we were founded specifically for this purpose 23 years ago – we think it’s important for girls to become comfortable taking intellectual risks, and advocating for themselves and their own ideas,” says Principal Janice Gladstone. “As an educator with over 20 years of experience, I have never seen groups of graduating students who better understood themselves, cared more about making positive change, and were better prepared for competitive professional and academic post-secondary training than Linden’s strong and articulate young women,” she adds. 

Supporting girls emotionally

Linden offers more than just challenging academics.  The school is highly regarded for its exceptional girl-centered program where girls receive individualized support and encouragement within a tight-knit community where everyone knows your name. “Girls thrive in an environment where relationships are strong and authentic, and where inclusiveness, acceptance, and diversity are celebrated. We work proactively to build a strong sense of community, emotional well-being, and healthy conflict resolution,” says Director of Academics and Guidance, Tara Silver.
