Julia Morgan School for Girls is committed to creating a challenging and inspiring academic program that encourages all students to recognize and meet their potentials through individualized attention and the guidance of expert teachers. The faculty has developed an engaging program, and subject areas are taught using an interdisciplinary approach designed when possible to integrate disciplines. The relational model is core to what we do at JMSG, and therefore collaborative learning, effective communication, and valuing each student are emphasized.
JMSG believes students should graduate with a deep sense of personal and social responsibility. The progressive program nurtures each student’s compassion and sense of social justice in every area of school life. Weekly advising check-ins and activities, school assemblies, and social and emotional learning classes, develop personal and social awareness, teaching students to empathize, give support, and tackle the complex moral issues that arise during adolescence. In academic classes, girls are engaged in explorations of culture as well as environmental, economic, and ethical issues. Service-learning guest speakers, field trips, and special all-school events such as the annual Gift of Giving, a community service event, provide multiple perspectives and opportunities to connect with the larger community.
