The Our Kids review of Miss Edgar's & Miss Cramp's School
The names are authentic—Maud Edgar and Mary Cramp founded the school in 1909—though any whiff of association to Dickens' novels ends there. Maud was the daughter of Matilda Ridout Edgar, a prominent patriot, historian, and feminist in the very earliest days of Canadian suffragism. Her ideals and her indomitable spirit rubbed off on her daughter and, in turn, were reflected in the school. The curriculum then, as now, was very much rooted in the liberal arts with an eye to leadership and philanthropy. On the school's site is a video that includes a clip where Michelle Obama notes that "the world is big. And it's full of challenges. And we need strong, smart, confident young women to stand up and take the reins." The ideal student is one who shares that vision, and who has the interest and the drive to play an active role in a changing world.
