Bishop Strachan School - September 15, 2014

COME TALK TO US!

Come talk to us about girls' education. About finding one's voice. About creativity, collaboration and compassion.


Bishop Strachan School - September 15, 2014

FORM INTERSECTS FUNCTION

Visionary Building Committee sets standards and heights high.


Ms. Deryn Lavell
Head of School
Since our founding as an all girls school in 1867, a time when there were very few options for women in education, BSS has developed a profound level of expertise in the particular learning needs of girls. That expertise has evolved over time through our own living laboratory of educating more than 50,000 girls over 145 years, as well as the continuing evidence emerging from science and brain research, advances in pedagogy, and our constant collaboration with peer educators. It is fascinating to see now that the natural learning styles of girls such as collaboration, real-world associations, creativity and curiosity, coincide perfectly with the 21st century learning skills all schools are currently pursuing. We’re ahead of the curve by at least a decade and pushing the boundaries of those frontiers that will set a new standard in program excellence. That’s our goal. Deryn Lavell Head of School
